"The problem of periodic precipitation in solution or gel is considered from the standpoint of supplementing the simple diffusion equation with chemical reaction rate terms. This addition has the effect of making the differential equations of the process non-linear.
The system of equations admits of a periodic, steady-state solution under certain conditions, but lack of experimental values for the parameters prohibits a definite statement as to whether or not the model is valid"--Abstract, page ii.
