She begins with existence theorems, providing examples including the Volterra equations for predator-prey systems, the Hodgkin-Huxley equations, the Field-Noyes model for the Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction and the Goodwin equations for a chemical reaction system.
For their studies, Showalter and his colleagues used the most well-studied waveforming chemical reaction, known as the Belousov-Zhabotinsky (BZ) reaction (SN: 2/21/98, p.
Showalter and his coworkers studied a photosensitive version of a chemical system known as the Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction, in which rising and falling chemical concentrations appear as visible waves traveling through a thin layer of silica gel.
Having already worked out a coupled oscillator model to account for some of the swirling, cyclic patterns observed in a chemical system known as the Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction, Kuramoto extended this mathematical framework to incorporate Winfree's ideas.
The solution contains the ingredients for a widely studied oscillating chemical system known as the Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction (SN: 7/1/89, p.
Most of these researchers studied Belousov-Zhabotinsky reactions, which oscillate between stable states -- often marked by different colors -- or generate spirals, moving wave fronts and other dynamic spatial and temporal patterns (SN: 7/1/89, p.
