Exponential stability of the traveling fronts for a viscous Fisher-KPP equation

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • This paper is concerned with the stability of traveling front solutions for a viscous Fisher-KPP equation. By applying geometric singular perturbation method, special Evans function estimates, detailed spectral analysis and $C_0$ semigroup theories, each traveling front solution with wave speed $c<-2\sqrt{f^\prime(0)}$ is proved to be locally exponentially stable in some appropriate exponentially weighted spaces.
