Period doubling cascade in diffusion flames

Milan Miklavčič
2007 Combustion theory and modelling  
Here it is shown that chaotic oscillations can appear after a series of period doublings in radiating diffusion flames when the activation temperature is high enough. It is also shown that period doubling cascades appear typically in very small regions and that they may not be observable if one starts with small perturbations of a steady flame.
