Title: A Strong Maximum Principle for Reaction Diffusion Systems

Abstract: The strong maximum principle says that for solutions to certain PDE, if a solution achieves its maximum/minimum in the interior of its domain then it must be constant. I will explain Weinberger's extension of this principle to reaction diffusion systems and my extension of his result to arbitrary convex sets.
