# Global-in-time behavior of the solution to a Gierer-Meinhardt system

Karali, Georgia D and Suzuki, Takashi and Yamada, Yoshio (2012) Global-in-time behavior of the solution to a Gierer-Meinhardt system. (In Press)

Gierer-Meinhardt system is a mathematical model to describe biological pattern formation due to activator and inhibitor. Turing pattern is expected in the presence of local self-enhancement and long-range inhibition. The long-time behavior of the solution, however, has not yet been clarified mathematically. In this paper, we study the case when its ODE part takes periodic-in-time solutions, that is, $\tau=s+1$. Under some additional assumptions on parameters, we show that the solution exists global-in-time and absorbed into one of these ODE orbits. Thus spatial patterns eventually dis- appear if those parameters are in a region without local self-enhancement or long-range inhibition.
