Quenching, reaction-diffusion system, finite difference, numerical quenching time, nonlinear boundary condition, maximum principles


We study the quenching behavior of the solution of a semi- linear reaction-diffusion system with nonlinear boundary conditions. We prove that the solution quenches in finite time and its quenching time goes to the one of the solution of the differential system. We also obtain lower and upper bounds for quenching time of the solution.
