We study the dynamics of the front separating a spatiotemporally chaotic region from a stable steady region using a simple model applicable to periodically forced systems. In particular, we investigate both the coarsening of the front induced by the inherent “noise” of the chaotic region, and the long wavelength dynamics causing the front to develop cusps.
