File Information

This 15-line matlab program solves the nonlinear reaction
diffusion equation, called Kolmogorov-Petrovskii-Piskunov
(KPP) equation to generate patterns (ribbons and rings).
The numerical method is simple and program is easy to
understand, and it can be extended to simulated
more complex systems. The snapshot was generated by pattern(400);

MATLAB release MATLAB 6.0 (R12)

Thanks. Here is a link to the web site on pattern formation by Prof. Michael Cross
which has a few excellent Java demos.
