Abstract

Certain features of the dynamics of rotating spirals in small two-dimensional domains were studied by numerical bifurcation and stability analysis. Following Barkley's earlier work, it was found that these spirals rotate around the center of a circular domain. These spirals were also computed as steady states of the reaction-diffusion equations in a corotating frame.
