A kinetic description of lattice-gas automaton models for reaction-diffusion systems is presented. It provides corrections to the mean-field rate equations in the diffusion-limited regime. When applied to the two-species Maginu model, the theory gives an excellent quantitative prediction of the effect of slow diffusion on the periodic oscillations of the average concentrations in a spatially homogeneous state.
