Abstract

The problem of finding the propagation rate for traveling waves in reaction-transport systems with memory and long-range interactions has been considered. Our approach makes use of the generalized master equation with logistic growth, hyperbolic scaling, and Hamilton-Jacobi theory. We consider the case when the waiting-time distribution for the underlying microscopic random walk is modeled by the family of gamma distributions, which in turn leads to non-Markovian random processes and corresponding memory effects on mesoscopic scales. We derive formulas that enable us to determine the front propagation rate and understand how the memory and long-range interactions influence the propagation rate for traveling fronts. Several examples involving the Gaussian and discrete distributions for jump densities are presented.
