Chemical oscillations, waves, and turbulence. (English) Zbl 0558.76051

Springer Series in Synergetics, Vol. 19, Berlin etc.: Springer-Verlag. VIII, 156 p. DM 79.00; $ 28.80 (1984).
The book concerns the dynamics of many-oscillator systems of dissipative type with special emphasis on oscillating reaction-diffusion systems. The methods used are the reductive perturbation method and the phase description method. These are applied to: the onset of collective rhythms; the wavepattern formation and the diffusion induced chemical turbulence. The book has seven chapters. Three of them concern the methods and the other the applications.
