Theory of laminar flames. (English) Zbl 0557.76001

Cambridge Monographs on Mechanics and Applied Mathematics. Cambridge etc.: Cambridge University Press. XII, 266 p. £25.00 (1982).
The book concerns the generation, structure and stability of flames. Some specific mathematical approaches developed in the past ten years are used and a unified theoretical description of fundamental flame phenomena is given. It provides that combustion can be legitimately treated as a mathematical science. The book will be of interest to researchers in combustion, fluid mechanics and applied mathematics.
