Analytical examples of diffusive waves generated by a traveling wave

Abstract

We construct analytical solutions for a system composed of a reaction-diffusion equation coupled with a purely diffusive equation. The question is to know if the traveling wave solutions of the reaction-diffusion equation can generate a traveling wave for the diffusion equation. Our motivation comes from the calcic wave, generated after fertilization within the egg cell endoplasmic reticulum, and propagating within the egg cell. We consider both the monostable (Fisher-KPP type) and bistable cases. We use a piecewise linear reaction term so as to build explicit solutions, which leads us to compute exponential tails which exponents are roots of second, third or fourth order polynomials. These rise conditions on the coefficients for existence of a traveling wave of the diffusion equation. The question of positivity and monotonicity is only partially answered.
