The FKPP wave front as a sensor of perturbed diffusion in concentrated systems.

Gabriel Morgado, Bogdan Nowakowski, Annie Lemarchand

The sensitivity to perturbations of the Fisher and Kolmogorov, Petrovskii, Piskunov front is used to find a quantity revealing perturbations of diffusion in a concentrated solution of two chemical species with different diffusivities. The deterministic dynamics includes cross-diffusion terms due to the deviation from the dilution limit. The behaviors of the front speed, the shift between the concentration profiles of the two species, and the width of the reactive zone are investigated, both analytically and numerically. The shift between the two profiles turns out to be a well-adapted criterion presenting noticeable variations with the deviation from the dilution limit in a wide range of parameter values.
