### Abstract

The first part of this paper starts with a brief discussion of some methods for solution of nonlinear equations which have interested the first author over the last twenty years or so. In the second part we discuss a recent research involvement, the success of which relies heavily on the numerical solution of nonlinear equation systems. We briefly describe path-following methods and then present an application to a simple steady-state reactiondiffusion equation arising in combustion theory. Results for some regular geometric shapes are shown and compared with those from an approximate method. 7
