Abstract : We formulate the notion of the classical Fisher-Kolmogorov-Petrovskii-Piscounov (FKPP) reaction diffusion equation associated with a homogeneous conservative fragmentation process and study its travelling waves. Specifically we establish existence, uniqueness and asymptotics. In the spirit of classical works such as McKean [31, 32], Neveu  and Chauvin  our analysis exposes the relation between travelling waves certain additive and multiplicative martingales via laws of large numbers which have been previously studied in the context of Crump- Mode-Jagers (CMJ) processes by Nerman  and in the context of fragmentation processes by Bertoin and Martinez  and Harris et al. . The conclusions and methodology presented here appeal to a number of concepts coming from the theory of branching random walks and branching Brownian motion showing their mathematical robustness even within the context of fragmentation theory.
