Waves and patterns in reaction-diffusion systems. Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction in water-in-oil microemulsions

Photochemistry Center, Russian Academy of Sciences, Novatorov str. 7a, Moscow, 117421, Russian Federation

Advances in nonequilibrium pattern formation in reaction-diffusion systems are reviewed. Special emphasis is placed on patterns found in the spatially extended Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction dispersed in aerosol OT water-in-oil microemulsions (BZ-AOT system): Turing patterns, packet and standing waves, antispirals and segmented spirals, and accelerating waves and oscillons. All experimental results are explained theoretically and reproduced in computer simulations.
