Abstract
A one species time–delay reactiondiffusion system defined on a complex networks is studied. Travelling waves are predicted to occur as follows a symmetry breaking instability of an homogenous stationary stable solution, subject to an external non homogenous perturbation. These are generalized Turinglike waves that materialize in a single species populations dynamics model, as the unexpected byproduct of the imposed delay in the diffusion part. Sufficient conditions for the onset of the instability are mathematically provided by performing a linear stability analysis adapted to time delayed differential equation. The method here developed exploits the properties of the Lambert Wfunction. The prediction of the theory are confirmed by direct numerical simulation carried out for a modified version of the classical Fisher model, defined on a WattsStrogatz networks and with the inclusion of the delay.
