A uniformly distributed mathematical model (based on Semenov's theory of thermal explosions) is formulated to model the thermal behaviour of cellulosic materials in compost piles. The model consists of a mass balance equation for oxygen, a heat balance equation and incorporates the heat release due to biological activity within the pile. Singularity theory and degenerate Hopf bifurcation theory are...
