Instabilities, pattern formation, and turbulence in flames. (English) Zbl 0538.76053

Annual Review of Fluid Mechanics 15, 179-199 (1983).
[For the entire collection see Zbl 0532.00016.]
Considerable progress has recently been achieved in the understanding of the nature and character of spontaneous instabilities in premixed flames. The present survey is devoted to the latest theoretical results in this area, which have disclosed a deep affinity between flames and other nonequilibrium physical systems capable of generating regular and intrinsically chaotic structures.
