This collection, translated from the 1999 Russian edition, includes accounts of significant work on facets of combustion instability, including low frequency oscillations in liquid rocket combustion chambers, phenomenological models of the combustion process, the acoustic response of the combustion chamber, high frequency (acoustic) oscillations in a combustion chamber, nonlinear effects, application of the frequency-response method for studying the dynamical properties of the combustion zone, the stability of combustion of fuel drops in a flow of gaseous oxidizer, and bifurcations of steady combustion regimes and their effect on the onset of high-frequency oscillations.
