Stochastic reaction-diffusion equations

Active media are a suitable benchmark to study the constructive role of random fluctuations in pattern forming systems. The mathematical framework to model these pattern forming systems is by using Partial Differential Equations. The interaction between the non-linearities and the random perturbations can give rise to unexpected phenomena. Several types of non-linear systems are considered and in particular extended chemical reacions where the noise is externally controlled by a computer. White, globally temporal or spatio-temporal noises interact with spiral waves, Turing patterns, oscillations and traveling waves in a contra-intuitive way.
