On Nonlinear Kelvin‐Helmholtz Waves Near Direct Resonance
The evolution equation for the nonlinear Kelvin‐Helmholtz wave envelope with its carrier wavenumber near direct resonance is formulated directly by using the nonlinear dispersion relation. The stability of a wavetrain is examined, and the long‐time evolution for an arbitrary initial condition is studied through inverse scattering transforms.
