Abstract:

Progress was made in understanding thermodynamics, kinetics and stochastic theories for non-linear chemical reactions far from equilibrium. Thermodynamics analysis for systems far from equilibrium has established necessary and sufficient criteria of global stability and relative stability. Evaluations of transitions between periodic and aperiodic conditions in combustion kinetics have been classified based on the instable feature and the type of feed back loop, this study may contribute to find an operational way to develop a mechanism from experimental results.
