## The stability of stationary fronts for a discrete nerve axon model

 1 High Bridge, NJ 08829, United States

Received  April 2006 Revised  August 2006 Published  November 2006

We consider the stability of single-front stationary solutions to a spatially discrete reaction-diffusion equation which models front propagation in a nerve axon. The solution's stability depends on the coupling parameter, changing from stable to unstable and from unstable to stable at a countably infinite number of values of this diffusion coefficient.
