Abstract

Chemical reactions seldom obey the “well-stirred-reactor” scheme, so that the actual spatial distribution of reactants is of importance at all times. Recent advances in the field are due to improved numerical techniques, which often paved the way for a deeper analytical treatment. We survey the knowledge on the A + B → 0 reaction, paying special attention to mixing techniques (stirring transformations as well as Levy-processes).
