We present an overview of several applications of reactive flow and transport in which interesting mathematical issues and computational challenges arise. The topics include front propagation through porous media in the presence of dispersion; numerical simulation of large-scale reactive transport problems; the reliability of processes that involve in-situ generation of viscosifying agents; methods for describing pore-scale geometry in granular media; and the information content of reactive tracer experiments. The intent of this survey is to heighten awareness of underlying mathmetical aspects and, it is hoped, to stimulate new contributions in these areas.
