Abstract: Multicomponent reactive flows are associated with a variety of phenomena and processes: pollutant formation, biotechnology, fuel droplets in combustion, sprays, astrophysical plasma. Analyzing the physical regimes associated with various processes unfolds complex chemistry mechanisms and detailed transport phenomena. Many interesting problems in that context involve the behavior of solutions to the governing equations for multicomponent reactive flows as certain parameters vanish or become infinity. This work establishes rigorously the incompressible limit for weak solutions to multicomponent reactive flows. The analysis treats the cases of both bounded and unbounded domains.
