The Rashevsky-Turing System: Two Coupled Oscillators as a Generic Reaction-Diffusion Model
A two-compartment reaction-diffusion system is investigated both analytically and numerically. Owing to the system’s symmetry, a complete characterization of the three fixed points and their respective stability is achieved. Dependent on the coupling strength, different types of chaos can be observed in computer simulations. Some implications of the model are pointed out.
