Reaction-Diffusion Equations and Matlab

Reaction-Diffusion Equations and Matlab

Reaction-Diffusion Equations and Matlab

(OP)
I want to solve the reaction-diffusion problem, in 2D, with Matlab:

Sum_{j=1}^{4} D_{1j} * (drond^{2}z_{j} / drond x^{2} + drond^{2}z_{j} / drond y^{2}) + R_{1} = 0
Sum_{j=1}^{4} D_{2j} * (drond^{2}z_{j} / drond x^{2} + drond^{2}z_{j} / drond y^{2}) + R_{2} = 0
Sum_{j=1}^{4} D_{3j} * (drond^{2}z_{j} / drond x^{2} + drond^{2}z_{j} / drond y^{2}) + R_{3} = 0
Sum_{j=1}^{4} D_{4j} * (drond^{2}z_{j} / drond x^{2} + drond^{2}z_{j} / drond y^{2}) + R_{4} = 0
Boundary conditions: x = 0,1 z_{1} = 1 ; x = 0,1 z_{2,3,4} = 0

So, I have a system with four partial diffrential equations. and I want to plot the solution for every equations.

What it's wrong in my code ? The plots of solutions must be a surface (almost like a bell), but is not.

makes no sense to me, and you don't seem to do anything much with vv2 etc

RE: Reaction-Diffusion Equations and Matlab

(OP)
Hi Greg,

Thanks for your reply.
I think my issues start when I try to split the big vector v, into 4 small vectors (one for each equation:v1,v2,v3,v4).
After that, the boundary conditions(vv1,vv2,vv3,vv4) is not correctly implemented (it's need to be created dynamically).
In conclusion, there is a size issue between:
- [x,y] = meshgrid(a:h:b);
- split the vector v
- surf(x,y,vv1);
But, I don't have any idea to resolv the issue.

Cheers,
George Sarbu


RE: Reaction-Diffusion Equations and Matlab

Frankly I'm amazed it runs at all

v2=v(pas+1:2*pas);

pas is a 1x2 matrix, what do you think that line is supposed to accomplish? I suspect that you really want

v2=v(pas(1)+1:2*pas(1));

doubtless there are similar problems with array sizes later on

Cheers

RE: Reaction-Diffusion Equations and Matlab

(OP)
I make some changes:

CODE --> Matlab

% split the solution vector
pas=size(A11);
v1=v(1:pas);
v2=v(pas(1)+1:2*pas(1));
v3=v(2*pas(1)+1:3*pas(1));
v4=v(3*pas(1)+1:4*pas(1));

% boundary conditions
for i=1:pas
  vv1(i,1)=1;
  vv2(i,1)=0;
  vv3(i,1)=0;
  vv4(i,1)=0;
end
vv1(:,2)=v1;
vv2(:,2)=v2;
vv3(:,2)=v3;
vv4(:,2)=v4;

for i=3:pas
  for j=1:pas
    vv1(j,i)=1;
    vv2(j,i)=0;
    vv3(j,i)=0;
    vv4(j,i)=0;
  end
end 

Now, if I take h very small: h = (b-a)/(n+10), the surf function run well. But, of course the plot is not like a bell :)

RE: Reaction-Diffusion Equations and Matlab

Sadly I don't have the time to figure out what you are actually tying to accomplish (the first 4 lines in your first post don't actually mean anything to me) so all I can suggest is to break the problem down into small parts, check that each step works, including the sizes of the arrays, at each step.

Cheers
