Title: Various solution types for reaction-diffusion equations on lattices and graphs

Abstract: We discuss reaction-diffusion equations on lattices and graphs. The motivation comes both from theory (partial discretization) as well as from applications (especially mathematical ecology and population dynamics). We study and focus on properties which distinguish the discrete-space problem from the standard problem on continuous domain. This concerns mainly two solution types. First, we study the rich world of spatially heterogeneous stationary solutions and their stability. In the second part, we introduce the concept of bi- and multichromatic travelling waves on lattices. We observe that both problems are closely related to an interesting algebraic question regarding indefinite perturbations of semidefinite matrices.
