Flash dance: Strobes are pyrotechnic compositions which burn in an oscillatory manner: a dark and a flash phase alternate periodically (see scheme). They have various applications in the fireworks industry and also as flares. However, their mechanism is not well understood. A few better understood oscillatory systems (Belousov–Zhabotinsky reactions, cool flames, self-propagating high-temperature synthesis) are compared to observations made on strobe mixtures.
