Title:Traveling wave solutions to reaction diffusion equations with fractional Laplacians
Seminar:Multiscale Modeling and Simulations Seminar
Speaker:Changfeng Gui, National Science Foundation
In this talk, I will discuss the existence and asymptotic behavior of traveling wave solutions to Allen-Cahn equation with fractional Laplacians where the double well potenotial has unequal depths. A key ingredient is the estimate of the speed of the traveling wave in terms of the potential, which seems new even for the classical Allen-Cahn equation. I will also discuss nonexistence of traveling wave solutions to a nonlocal combustion model. The talk is based on recent results obtained jointly with Tingting Huan and with Mingfeng Zhao respectively.
