If you have a question about this talk, please contact Alexandra Tzella. Homoclinic snaking of localized patterns has been observed in a variety of experimental and theoretical contexts. The phenomenon, in which a multiplicity of localized states exists within an exponentially small parameter range, is due to a slowly varying amplitude ’locking’ to the underlying, fast-scale pattern. Through a careful asymptotic analysis of the one-dimensional Swift-Hohenberg equation, we show how the conventional method of multiple scales near bifurcation must be extended to incorporate exponentially small eﬀects if a complete asymptotic description of snaking behaviour is to be achieved. We then apply similar techniques to study one-dimensional snaking on a square lattice, in which the slow amplitude locks onto the spatial grid, and show that the snaking region is non-zero only when the solution is oriented at an angle which has a rational or infinite tangent.
