In this paper we propose a new method of investigating the change of dynamics in reaction–diffusion equations, which is based on approximating the Euclidian norm of state variables along with the introduction of phase space. Our method is simple in implementation and can be applied to study the dynamics of multiple spirals. The method is extended to study the stability of spiral waves by developing an algorithm which is applied to circular and meandering motions.
