Applications of Slowly Varying Nonlinear Dispersive Wave Theories
Previous theories for the slow dispersion of singly periodic and multiply periodic nonlinear wavetrains are applied to various examples. Stability of the solution with respect to large scale variations and possible shocks in the wave properties (frequency, wavenumber, and amplitude) are discussed. The general approach is also used to analyze certain aperiodic waves.
