Thermodiffusion-induced instabilities in reactive systems.

Abstract

We examine the influence of a thermal gradient on a classical reaction-diffusion system. The different instability regions in the appropriate parameter space are examined. We show how the imposed temperature gradient destabilizes a chemical front via the Soret effect, giving rise to both absolute and convective instability.
