Résumé
Several mechanisms have been proposed to explain the spontaneous generation of selforganised patterns, hypothesised to play a role in the formation of many of the magnificent patterns observed in Nature. In several cases of interest, the system under scrutiny displays a homogeneous equilibrium, which is destabilised via a symmetry breaking instability which reflects the specificity of the problem being inspected. The Turing instability is among the most celebrated paradigms for pattern formation. In its original form, the diffusion constants of the two mobile species need to be quite different from each other for the instability to develop. Unfortunately, this condition limits the applicability of the theory. To overcome this impediment, and with the ambitious long term goal to eventually reconcile theory and experiments, we here propose an alternative mechanism for promoting the onset of pattern. To this end a multispecies reactive model is studied, assuming a generalized transport on a discrete and directed networklike support: the instability is triggered by the nonnormality of the embedding network. The nonnormal character of the dynamics instigates a short time amplification of the imposed perturbation, thus making the system unstable for a choice of parameters that would yield stability under the con ventional scenario. In other words, nonnormality promotes the emergence of patterns in cases where a classical linear analysis would not predict them. The importance of our result relies also on the fact that nonnormal networks are pervasively found, motivating the general interest of the mechanism discussed here.
