Abstract : We study the propagation of solitary waves in a discrete excitatory network of integrate-and-fire neurons. We show the existence and the stability of a fast wave and a family of slow waves. Fast waves are similar to those already described in continuum networks. Stable slow waves have not been previously reported in purely excitatory networks and their propagation is particular to the discrete nature of the network. The robustness of our results is studied in the presence of noise.
