Abstract

In this paper a continuous stirred tank reactor (CSTR) model of a first-order, exothermic reaction is examined and the existence of a cusp catastrophe is shown. Analytical solutions are developed for the ignition and quenching boundaries. The significance of the results and further extensions are discussed.
