Annihilation dynamics in the KPP-Fisher equation

  • M. RODRIGO (a1) and M. MIMURA (a2)

We study the annihilation dynamics arising in the KPP-Fisher equation, proposed by Fisher in 1936 to model the propagation of a mutant gene and subsequently studied rigorously in the seminal work of Kolmogorov, Petrovskii and Piskunov. The approach is via a comparison theorem, where the comparison functions satisfy equations which are linearizable to the heat equation. In some sense, we have obtained a ‘linearization’ of the KPP-Fisher equation.
