A simple reaction-diffusion model is used to study competition
between languages or cultural traits diffusing in the same geographical
area. Numerical simulations show that the final configuration can be
strongly affected by geographical and historical factors not directly
related to the dynamics of culture transmission, but rather to initial
population distributions and geographical boundaries and inhomogeneities
which modulate the diffusion process.
