Evans Function Computation

We present an overview of the Evans function and its importance in the study of traveling wave stability. We will discuss the latest results in the stability of viscous shock layers in compressible fluid flow, including detonation waves. We also present an overview of STABLAB: A Numerical Library for Evans Function Computation. This package is written in both MATLAB and Python. Several examples will be considered.
