Abstract
Soliton like structures called “stable droplets” are found to exist within a paradigm reaction<br /> diffusion model which can be used to describe the patterning in a number of fish species. It is<br /> straightforward to analyse this phenomenon in the case when two non-zero stable steady states are<br /> symmetric, however the asymmetric case is more challenging. We use a recently developed<br /> perturbation technique to investigate the weakly asymmetric case.<br />
