This work is devoted to mathematical modeling of frontal polymerization in porous media. It is a new method to organize the polymerization process which may have some technological advantages. In the paper we formulate a mathematical model which describes frontal polymerization in a porous medium reactor and study stationary regimes of frontal polymerization as well as their stability.
