Abstract

This work deals with the formation of patterns of spatially localized solitary objects in a planar semiconductor gas-discharge system with a high Ohmic electrode. These objects, known as dissipative solitons, are generated in this system in the form of self-organized current filaments, which develop from the homogeneous stationary state by the Turing bifurcation. The numerical model reveals, for the first time, evidence of spontaneous division of the current filaments in this system, similar to that observed in the experiment, in the physically relevant parameter regime.
