The textbook first encounter with nonlinearity in a partial differential equation (PDE) is the first-order wave equation: $u_t + u u_x = 0$. Often referred to as the inviscid Burgers equation, this equation is familiar to many in the theoretical contexts of characteristics, wavebreaking, or shock propagation. Another canonical behavior contained within this simplest of PDEs is the spectral cascade. Surprisingly, buried in a little-known 1964 article by G.W. Platzman is an elegant example of an…

A New Approach for a Nonlocal, Nonlinear Conservation Law
TLDR
An approach to nonlocal, nonlinear advection in one dimension that extends the usual pointwise concepts to account for nonlocal contributions to the flux and describes the connection to a nonlocal viscous regularization, which mimics the viscous Burgers equation in an appropriate limit.

Pedestrian-structure synchronisation : application to swaying footbridges
TLDR
A continuous crowd-structure model is proposed which allows for the modelling of the lateral oscillations of the bridge and the behaviour of the crowd, taking into account the synchronization, and application to real footbridges allows for a better understanding and a correct representation of pedestrians behaviour.

TLDR
The spectrum of the Korteweg-deVries-Burgers equation can be partially mapped onto the inertial spectrum of a Burgers equation with a suitable effective diffusion coefficient and is significant for the understanding of turbulence.
