    A spectral method is used to consider the porous medium combustion in an infinite slab. The infinite system of ordinary differential equations for the amplitude functions is truncated and comparisons are made for different numbers of modes included in the numerical computation. It is shown that the qualitative behaviour of the solution is captured by the first eigenmode. Dependence of the solution on initial data and a parameter is also considered.
