Interesting post by +David Ketcheson pointing out that neither the Schrodinger equation nor the wave equation are reaction-diffusion systems. In Ready ( we include both of these systems without worrying about this distinction.

Schrodinger's equation is particularly neat when expanded into real and imaginary components:
da = -Laplacian(b); db = Laplacian(a);
But his point is that each depends on the Laplacian of the other, not itself.

The Schrodinger equation is not a reaction-diffusion equation
