Finite gap conditions and small dispersion asymptotics for the classical periodic Benjamin–Ono equation

In this paper we characterize the Nazarov–Sklyanin hierarchy for the classical periodic Benjamin–Ono equation in two complementary degenerations: for the multiphase initial data (the periodic

On the generation of dispersive shock waves

Lax eigenvalues in the zero-dispersion limit for the Benjamin-Ono equation on the torus

We consider the zero-dispersion limit for the Benjamin-Ono equation on the torus for bell shaped initial data. Using the approximation by truncated Fourier series, we transform the eigenvalue

Several topics are studied concerning mathematical models for the unidirectional propagation of long waves in systems that manifest nonlinear and dispersive effects of a particular but common kind.

Integrable viscous conservation laws

We propose an extension of the Dubrovin–Zhang perturbative approach to the study of normal forms for non-Hamiltonian integrable scalar conservation laws. The explicit computation of the first few

Universality of the Break-up Profile for the KdV Equation in the Small Dispersion Limit Using the Riemann-Hilbert Approach

AbstractWe obtain an asymptotic expansion for the solution of the Cauchy problem for the Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equation $$u_t+6uu_x+\epsilon^{2}u_{xxx}=0,\quad u(x,t=0,\epsilon)=u_0(x),$$for

This paper presents a general theoretical treatment of a new class of long stationary waves with finite amplitude. As the property in common amongst physical systems capable of manifesting these

An extension of the steepest descent method for Riemann-Hilbert problems: the small dispersion limit of the Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equation.

This paper extends the steepest descent method for Riemann-Hilbert problems introduced by Deift and Zhou in a critical new way to small dispersion KdV (Korteweg-de Vries) equation and derives the hyperelliptic asymptotic solution of S. Venakides that describes the oscillations.

A Deformation of the Method of Characteristics and the Cauchy Problem for Hamiltonian PDEs in the Small Dispersion Limit

We introduce a deformation of the method of characteristics valid for Hamiltonian perturbations of a scalar conservation law in the small dispersion limit. Our method of analysis is based on the

On a functional equation related to the intermediate long wave equation

We resolve an open problem stated by Ablowitz et al (1982 J. Phys. A: Math. Gen. 15 781) concerning the integral operator appearing in the intermediate long wave equation. We explain how this is

The Small Dispersion Limit of the Korteweg-deVries Equation. I

In Part I the scattering transform method is used to study the weak limit of solutions to the initial value problem for the Korteweg-deVries (KdV) equation as the dispersion tends to zero. In that

The KdV hierarchy: universality and a Painlevé transcendent

We study the Cauchy problem for the Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) hierarchy in the small dispersion limit where $\e\to 0$. For negative analytic initial data with a single negative hump, we prove that for

Monodromy- and spectrum-preserving deformations I

A method for solving certain nonlinear ordinary and partial differential equations is developed. The central idea is to study monodromy preserving deformations of linear ordinary differential
