I was trying to obtain the pattern formation in Meinhardt-Gierer Substrate-depletion using fenics but was able to arrive at the homogeneous steady state solution as opposed to the pattern formation being observed. Could someone point out to me where I might have gone wrong with the code which has been attached below ??

Thanks in advance

Thanks in advance
