Summary: The matrix-free Newton-Krylov method that uses the GMRES algorithm (an iterative algorithm for solving systems of linear algebraic equations) is used for the parametric continuation of the solitary traveling pulse solution in a three-component reaction-diffusion system. Using the results of integration on a short time interval, we replace the original system of nonlinear algebraic equations by another system that has a more convenient (from the viewpoint of the spectral properties of the GMRES algorithm) Jacobi matrix. The proposed parametric continuation proves to be efficient for large-scale problems, and it makes it possible to thoroughly examine the dependence of localized solutions on a parameter of the model.
