We study interacting particle (spin) systems on a lattice under the combined influence of Glauber (spin flip) and simple exchange (Kawasaki) dynamics. We prove that when the conserving exchanges occur on a microscopically fast scale the macroscopic density (magnetization) evolves according to an autonomous nonlinear diffusion-reaction equation. Microscopic fluctuations about the deterministic macroscopic evolution are found explicitly. They grow, with time, to become infinite, when the deterministic solution is unstable.
