A family of solitary-wave solutions is found using a constrained minimisation principle and concentration-compactness methods for noncoercive functionals. The solitary waves are approximated by scalings of the corresponding solutions to partial differential equations arising as weakly nonlinear approximations; in the case of the Whitham equation the approximation is the Korteweg-deVries equation. We also demonstrate that the family of solitary-wave solutions is conditionally energetically stable. Using harmonic maps we provide an approach towards obtaining explicit solutions to the incompressible two-dimensional Euler equations. While the general solution is not available in explicit form, the structural properties of the system permit us to identify several classes of explicit solutions. Waves propagating under an ice sheet are considered.

Solitary waves are special solutions to nonlinear PDEs which arise due to a perfect balance between linear dispersive and nonlinear effects. They are localized disturbances that, as the name suggests, evolve without any change to their shape. In cases of completely integrable PDEs they are called solitons. Solitary waves appear in real world as, for instance, laser generated pulses, tidal bores, morning glory clouds, freak waves, tsunami, wakes of high speed ships, etc. In this seminar, after briefly covering the history of solitary wave research, we will define a plane wave, phase velocity, wavepacket, group velocity, dispersion relation and the slowly varying envelope approximation. We will next derive some famous soliton carrying PDEs, like the Korteweg-de Vries and the Nonlinear Schroedinger equations and sutdy their Hamiltonian structure, the simplest explicitely known solitons, Backlund transformations, hierarchy of conserved quantities, etc. We will also concentrate on numerical methods for finding solitary wave solutions in cases when analytic methods fail or are too complicated.

Wave Physics pp Cite as. We develop the theory of waves on water, starting with linear waves, then giving an account of the effect of nonlinearity, and lastly going on to the existence and description of solitons. In the last section we outline the method of inverse scattering for obtaining multi-soliton solutions. Thus, in Sect. The picture that emerges is one where in deep channels the elements of a fluid undergo circular motion of diminishing radius as we proceed perpendicularly from the surface into the channel. At the same time, dispersion, the change of the phase velocity of the waves with wave number, is revealed to be especially important in deep water.
