We first review the known mathematical results concerning the Kadomtsev–Petviashvili type equations. Then we perform numerical simulations to analyze various qualitative properties of the equations: blow-up versus long time behavior, stability and instability of solitary waves. 

Numerical study of blow-up in solutions to generalized Kadomtsev-Petviashvili equations
