The Turing instability is a paradigmatic route to pattern formation in reaction-diffusion systems.

In particular, we obtain a set of approximated closed conditions for identifying the domain in the parameter space that yields the instability. This is a natural generalization of the original Turing relations, to the case where the homogeneous solution of the examined system is a periodic function of time. The obtained framework applies to systems embedded in continuum space, as well as those defined on a networklike support.

Abstract

The Turing instability is a paradigmatic route to pattern formation in reaction-diffusion systems. Following a diffusion-driven instability, homogeneous fixed points can become unstablewhen subject to external perturbation. As a consequence, the system evolves towards a stationary, nonhomogeneous attractor. Stable patterns can be also obtained via oscillation quenching of an initially synchronous state of diffusively coupled oscillators. In the literature this is known as the oscillation death phenomenon. Here, we show that oscillation death is nothing but a Turing instability for the first return map of the system in its synchronous periodic state. In particular, we obtain a set of approximated closed conditions for identifying the domain in the parameter space that yields the instability. This is a natural generalization of the original Turing relations, to the case where the homogeneous solution of the examined system is a periodic function of time. The obtained framework applies to systems embedded in continuum space, as well as those defined on a networklike support. The predictive ability of the theory is tested numerically, using different reaction schemes.
