Résumé : Complex reactive dynamics on low-dimensional lattices is studied using mean-field models and Monte Carlo simulations. A lattice-compatible reactive scheme that gives rise to limit cycle behavior is constructed, involving a quadrimolecular reaction step and bimolecular adsorption and desorption steps. The resulting lattice limit cycle model is dissipative and, in the mean-field limit, exhibits sustained oscillations of the species concentrations for a wide range of parameter values. Lattice Monte Carlo simulations of the lattice limit cycle model show locally the emergence of sustained oscillations of the species concentrations. Random fluctuations of the concentrations, clustering between homologous species, and competition between the various clusters/species cause the in-phase oscillations of neighboring sites. Distant regions oscillate out of phase and spatial correlations decay exponentially with the distance. The amplitude and period of the local oscillations depend on the system parameters. © 2002 The American Physical Society.
