Chemical Regulation of Excitability in the Belousov-Zhabotinskii Reaction
- 107 Downloads
In an excitable medium, there exists a spatially homogeneous resting state which is stable to small perturbations. If a small region of space of such a system is perturbed beyond threshold, self-propagating waves travel through the medium without damping and after their propagation the medium returns to its original resting state .
