1. Nuclear mousetraps

An array of mousetraps and ping-pong balls results in a chain reaction. Construct a model for the macroscopic dynamics of such a system, identifying all relevant parameters, and determine the spatiotemporal behavior of the mousetrap excitation probability, and the threshold mousetrap density for the chain reaction to occur.
