GrayScott Model at F 0.0140, k 0.0430
These images and movie demonstrate the behavior of the GrayScott reactiondiffusion system with σ=D_{u}/D_{v}=2 and parameters F=0.0140, k=0.0430.
Simple spot patterns expand with smooth outer edges. In all cases tested, these waves annihilated, sometimes creating a few more ring waves as seen here. The number of rings diminishes with each generation, eventually resulting in a completely blank red pattern.
If manually seeded with spirals, these parameters allow patterns like those to the east.

In these images:
 Color indicates level of u, ranging from purple (lowest u values) through blue, aqua, green, yellow and pink/red (highest u values)
 Areas where u is increasing are lightened to a light pastel tone; where u is decreasing the color is vivid.
 In areas where u is changing by less than ±3×10^{6} per tu, an intermediate pastel color is seen. This includes areas that are in steady state or equilibrium.
''tu'' is the dimensionless unit of time, and ''lu'' the dimensionless unit of length, implicit in the equations that define the reactiondiffusion model. The grids for these simulations use Δx=1/143 lu and Δt=1/2 tu; the system is 3.2 lu wide. The simulation meets itself at the edges (periodic boundary condition); all images tile seamlessly if used as wallpaper.
