Multidimensional transition fronts for Fisher–KPP reactions


We study entire solutions to homogeneous reaction-diffusion equations in several dimensions with Fisher-KPP reactions. Any entire solution 0 < u < 1 is known to satisfy lim t→−∞ sup|x|≤c|t| u(t,x) = 0 for each c < 2√f′(0), and we consider here those satisfying lim t→−∞ sup|x|≤c|t| u(t,x) = 0 for some c > 2√f′(0). When f is C_2 and concave, our main result provides an almost complete characterization of transition fronts as well as transition solutions with bounded width within this class of solutions.
