A theory of explosions is developed which contains, as special cases, both the thermal theory and the isothermal chain theory of Semenoff. It contains qualitative features not present in either theory but under special circumstances reduces to each. Two illustrative applications are discussed in a general manner. Phase plane analysis, particularly suited to systems with only one important intermediate, is used.
