Abstract : Discussed is a research program in Bifurcation and Stability Theory with applications to Combustion and Flame Propagation, which determined both qualitative and quantitative behavior of solutions of theses problems. Results on the transition from laminar to turbulent combustion were obtained. Various simplified models from the general equations governing combustion, which were more amenable to mathematical analysis were derived. The methods of bifurcation and stability theory were then employed on the resulting models. A list of all the papers published, is appended. In addition a list of scientific personnel participating in the research program is appended.
