# Existence of travelling wave solutions in a combustion-radiation model

• We consider a simple model of premixed flames propagating in a gaseous mixture containing inert dust. The radiation field is modelled by the classical Eddington equation. The main parameters are the dimensionless opacity and the Boltzmann number. We prove the existence of travelling solutions with increased speed w.r.t. the adiabatic case. Several singular limiting cases (including a modification involving an ignition temperature) of the parameter values are discussed.
