Localize a and b, or have them as arguments. For instance n = 64; du = 2; dv = 16; dt = 0.01; totaliter = 10000; u = a + 0.3*RandomReal[{-0.5, 0.5}, {n, n}]; v = b/a + 0.3*RandomReal[{-0.5, 0.5}, {n, n}]; cf = Compile[{{uIn, _Real, 2}, {vIn, _Real, 2}, {aIn, _Real}, {bIn, _Real}, {duIn, _Real}, {dvIn, _Real}, \ {dtIn, _Real}, {iterationsIn, _Integer}}, Block[{ u = uIn, v = vIn, lap, dt = dtIn, k = bIn + 1, kern = N[{{0, 1, 0}, {1, -4, 1}, {0, 1, 0}}], du = duIn, dv = dvIn, a = 4.5, b = 7.5 }, Do[ lap = RotateLeft[u, {1, 0}] + RotateLeft[u, {0, 1}] + RotateRight[u, {1, 0}] + RotateRight[u, {0, 1}] - 4*u; u = u + dt*(du*lap + a - u*(k - v*u)); lap = RotateLeft[v, {1, 0}] + RotateLeft[v, {0, 1}] + RotateRight[v, {1, 0}] + RotateRight[v, {0, 1}] - 4*v; v = v + dt*(dv*lap + u*(b - v*u));, {iterationsIn}]; {u, v}], CompilationTarget -> "C"]; Timing[c1 = cf[u, v, a, b, du, dv, dt, totaliter];] ListDensityPlot[c1[[1]]] or without the CompilationTarget option for 7.

However, I feel that's still too slow to create a reasonable interactive Demonstration of the Brusselator where the user will be changing the paramters. Ideally, I'd like to get it down to about 2 seconds. I'm not sure how fast it would run in V8. Here is the complete code using Oliver's suggestions with some additional improvements for stripes that runs in 5.5 seconds on my machine. Can anyone suggest of a way to get it down to two seconds? > >
