Abstract : The stability of the detonation wave with respect to small perturbations is examined, being of interest in explaining spin detonation. It is pointed out that at the shock front of the detonation there is an overcompression in whose range the combustion of the mixture is accelerated. Mention is made that conditions of instability are found far from the limits of detonation. (Author)
