Abstract

The mechanism presented is modelled as a second order system {A figure is presented} dx/dt = F(x) with a non-diagonal capacity matrix. The model admits oscillatory solutions due to the interaction between the chemisorption capacities of the dynamic variables, even though no positive feedback is incorporated in the kinetic terms, that is ∂Fi/∂xi < 0. The model is investigated for regions of characteristic behavior and its stable and oscillatory solutions are compared to experimental observations.
