Numerical results on existence and stability of steady state solutions for the reaction-diffusion and Klein–Gordon equations

Abstract

In this paper, we study numerically the existence and stability of the steady state solutions of the reaction-diffusion equation, ut auxx u + u3 = 0, and the Klein–Gordon equation, utt + cut auxx u + u3 = 0, with the boundary conditions: u(1) = u(1) = 0. We show that as a varies, the number of steady state solutions and their stability change.
