Existence of radial stationary solutions for a system in combustion theory

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this paper, we construct radially symmetric solutions of a nonlinear non-cooperative elliptic system derived from a model for flame balls with radiation losses. This model is based on a one step kinetic reaction and our system is obtained by approximating the standard Arrehnius law by an ignition nonlinearity, and by simplifying the term that models radiation. We prove the existence of 2 solutions using degree theory.
