# Matt Holzer : Invasion fronts and wavespeed selection in systems of reaction-diffusion equations

Wavespeed selection refers to the problem of determining the long time asymptotic speed of invasion of an unstable homogeneous state by some other secondary state. This talk will review wavespeed selection mechanisms in the context of reaction-diffusion equations. Particular emphasis will be placed on the qualitative differences between wavespeed selection in systems of reaction-diffusion equations and scalar problems as well as some surprising consequences. The primary example will be a system of coupled Fisher-KPP equations that exhibit anomalous spreading wherein the coupling of two equations leads to faster spreading speeds.
