The spatiotemporal reaction-diffusion patterns emerging on cylindrical surfaces due to global coupling were studied. A condensed polynomial model was used to simulate spatio-temporal patterns in a cylindrical catalytic surface. The effect of kinetic parameters and system size was studied and approximate solutions for the bifurcation from one to two dimension patterns were also derived. The global-coupling effects due to mixing in the gas phase were observed and its strength and impact were discussed.
