Matt Holzer (University of Minnesota, Twin Cities)
In this talk, I will discuss some recent results concerning front propagation into unstable states in systems of reaction-diffusion equations. The system aspect will be key. The focus will be on some of the qualitative differences between wavespeed selection in systems of reaction-diffusion equations and their scalar counterparts. In particular, we will consider some examples of coupled Fisher-KPP equations.
