Discrete model of chemical turbulence

Yoshitsugu Oono, M. Kohmoto

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Presumably the simplest model of chemical turbulence is proposed, for which the spatial degree of freedom plays an important role. The concentration, as well as space and time, is discretized. As in the real experiment a turbulent phase is found sandwiched by two ordered phases. In addition, the model predicts a solitonlike phase. Thus the model can exhibit a variety of behaviors encountered in partial differential equation systems. It is also closely related to cellular automata.
