In this paper, we consider the numerical solution of fractional-inspace reaction-diffusion equation, which is obtained from the classical reactiondiffusion equation by replacing the second-order spatial derivative with a fractional derivative of order α ∈ (1, 2]. We adopt a class of second-order approximations, based on the weighted and shifted Grünwald difference operators in Riemann-Liouville sense to numerically simulate two multicomponent systems with fractional-order in higher dimensions.

The complexity of the dynamics in the equation is theoretically discussed by conducting its local and global stability analysis and Numerical experiments are performed to back-up the theoretical claims. 2010 Mathematics Subject Classification.
