Aric Hagberg and Ehud Meron, "From labyrinthine patterns to spiral turbulence", Phys. Rev. Lett., vol. 72, no. 15, pp. 2494--2497, 1994


A new mechanism for spiral vortex nucleation in nongradient reaction diffusion systems is proposed. It involves two key ingredients: An Ising-Bloch type front bifurcation and an instability of a planar front to transverse perturbations. Vortex nucleation by this mechanism plays an important role in inducing a transition from labyrinthine patterns to spiral turbulence.
