The book is aimed at the analysis of contemporary problems in combustion science, namely flame propagation, detonation, and heterophaseous combustion based on the original works of the author. In this book, some modern problems in the area of gaseous combustion, as well as the methods allowing to calculate or estimate limiting conditions of ignition, flame propagation, and detonation are considered.
