A free boundary model is used to describe frontal polymerization. Weakly nonlinear analysis is applied to investigate pulsating instabilities in two dimensions. The analysis produces a pair of Landau equations, which describe the evolution of the linearly unstable modes. Onset and stability of spinning and standing modes is described.
