Self-Organization in Precipitate Systems: Experiments & Theoretical Modeling


Pattern formation in precipitate systems is a fascinating self-organizing phenomenon which is encountered in numerous natural and chemical systems. It exhibits complex spatiotemporal dynamics such as static bands, propagating waves, and chaos. We present several precipitate systems that are currently under study in our laboratory, elucidate some aspects of their formation mechanism and introduce a theoretical model that describes them.
