Oscillations and Traveling Waves in Chemical Systems (0471893846) cover image


Brings together in one comprehensive volume information on oscillating chemical systems and their experimental behavior. As the first major work in this area, it details their mechanistic interpretation and relationship to theories of oscillatory and related behavior. Topics discussed include: the mathematical aspects of temporal oscillations in reacting systems, chemical oscillators based on iodate ion and hydrogen peroxide, numerical techniques for modeling and analysis oscillating reactions, halogen-based oscillators in a flow reactor, periodically perturbed chemical systems, and the structure and variety of chemical waves.
