There currently exist two methods for analysing an explosive mode introduced by chemical kinetics in a reacting process: the Computational Singular Perturbation (CSP) algorithm and the Chemical Explosive Mode Analysis (CEMA). CSP was introduced in 1989 and addressed both dissipative and explosive modes encountered in the multi-scale dynamics that characterize the process, while CEMA was introduced in 2009 and addressed only the explosive modes. It is shown that (i) the algorithmic tools incorporated in CEMA were developed previously on the basis of CSP and (ii) the examination of explosive modes has been the subject of CSP-based works, reported before the introduction of CEMA.
