Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A model of a chain-branching reaction with reactant consumption and regeneration is suggested to describe weakly damped oscillations. The number of variables in the model is two and the order of reactions steps is not more than two. Taking into account of the step of quadratic branching leads to the appearance of sustained oscillations (to the limit cycle).
