Trimolecular Flow Model, Slow Manifold, Flow Curvature Method, Invariance Property.


Slow invariant manifolds can contribute major rules in many slow-fast dynamical systems. This slow manifold can be obtained by eliminating the fast mode from the slow-fast system and allows us to reduce the dimension of the system where the asymptotic dynamics of the system occurs on that slow manifold and a low dimensional slow invariant manifold can reduce the computational cost. This article considers a trimolecular chemical dynamical Brusselator model of the mixture of two components that represents a chemical reaction-diffusion system. We convert this system of two-dimensional partial differential equations into four-dimensional ordinary differential equations by considering the new wave variable and obtain a new system of chemical Brusselator flow model. We observe that the onset of the chemical instability does not depend on the flow rate. We particularly study the slow manifold of the four-dimensional Brusselator flow model at zero flow speed. We apply the flow curvature method to the dynamical Brusselator flow model and acquire the analytical equation of the flow curvature manifold. Then we prove the invariance of this slow manifold equation with respect to the flow by using the Darboux invariance theorem. Finally, we find the osculating plane equation by using the flow curvature manifold.
