abstract

  • We illustrate how to extend the concept of structural stability through applying it to the front propagation speed selection problem. This consideration leads us to a renormalization group study of the problem. The study illustrates two very general conclusions: (1) singular perturbations in applied mathematics are best understood as renormalized perturbation methods, and (2) amplitude equations are renormalization group equations.
