Abstract: We consider a system of equations of the form $ {u_t} = {u_{xx}} + \nabla F(u)$. A traveling wave solution of this system is one of the form $ u(x,\,t) = U(z),\,z = x + \theta t$. Sufficient conditions on $ F(u)$ are given to guarantee the existence of infinitely many traveling wave solutions.
