Abstract : The stability of a laminar flame in the presence of a magnetic field is examined. Two important cases are considered: In the first case, the imposed magnetic field is assumed to be parallel to the flame; in the second, it is assumed to be normal to the flame. It is shown that a flame cannot be stabilized by the imposition of such magnetic f elds and that the parallel magnetic field of sufficient strength can have a stabilizing effect on some harmonic components only.
