## Abstract

A wide range of dynamic models, including those of heating, evaporation

and ignition processes in fuel sprays, is characterised by large differences

in the rates of change of variables. Invariant manifold theory is an effective

technique for investigation of these systems. In constructing the asymptotic

expansions of slow invariant manifolds it is commonly assumed that a limiting

algebraic equation allows one to find a slow surface explicitly. This is not

always possible due to the fact that the degenerate equation for this surface

(small parameter equal to zero) is either a high degree polynomial or transcendental. In many problems, however, the slow surface can be described in

a parametric form. In this case, the slow invariant manifold can be found in

parametric form using asymptotic expansions. If this is not possible, it is necessary to use an implicit presentation of the slow surface and obtain asymptotic representations for the slow invariant manifold in an implicit form. The results of development of the mathematical theory of these approaches and the applications of this theory to some examples related to modelling combustion

processes, including those in sprays, are presented.
