Linear reaction-hyperbolic equations arise in the transport of neurofilaments and membrane-bound organelles in axons. The profile of the solution was shown by simulations to be approximately that of a traveling wave; this was also suggested by formal calculations. In this talk I will describe a rigorous proof of such results.
