Abstract.

Reaction-diffusion systems are introduced to model spontaneous formation of spatial pattern from uniform states. However, in real biological systems, morphogenetic movements often take place in spatially heterogeneous environments. In this talk we study how spatial heterogeneity affects the location of concentration points for a single equation. Based on this knowledge we then consider to what extent we can control the location of concentration points in a two-component system.
