    We consider issues of computational complexity that arise in the study of quasi-periodic motions (Siegel discs) over the p-adic integers, where p is a prime number. These systems generate regular invertible dynamics over the integers modulo p[sup k], for all k, and the main questions concern the...

    We study the evolution of fronts in a bistable reaction–diffusion system when the nonlinear reaction term is spatially inhomogeneous. This equation has been used to model wave propagation in various biological systems. Extending previous works on homogeneous reaction terms, we derive...
