In this minisymposium we aim to gather recent progress on the bifurcation of nonlinear waves in various systems, from neuroscience, optimal control, multi-physics and ecology.
On the theoretical side we think of analytical results beyond simple Turing bifurcations in reaction–diffusion systems, for instance Turing-Hopf interactions, modulated traveling waves, non-local couplings, bifurcation in optimal control. Regarding applications we mainly aim at “non-standard” systems in neuroscience, ecology and economics, optics and fluids. Besides theory and applications we plan a few talks on new numerical methods and toolboxes for bifurcation analysis.
