Traveling wave fronts in spatially discrete reaction-diffusion equations on higher dimensional lattices

Xingfu Zou

This paper deals with the existence of traveling wave fronts of spatially discrete reaction-diffusion equations with delay on lattices with general dimension. A monotone iteration starting from an upper solution is established, and the sequence generated from the iteration is shown to converge to a profile function. The main theorem is then applied to a particular equation arising from branching theory.
