Talk Abstract
The Influence of Advection on the Propagation of Flame Fronts

Henri Berestycki
Department de Mathematiques
Universite de Paris VI

In this presentation, I will review some results and open problems in the framework of the thermo-diffusive model. One of the main themes is to understand how the existence and shapes of flames as well as the speed at which they propagate are related to the geometry and to the amplitude and frequency of oscillations of the underlying velocity field. These considerations are relevant for models of turbulent combustion.
