We study the properties of compacton-anticompacton collision processes. We compare and contrast results for the case of compacton-anticompacton solutions of the K(l,p) Rosenau-Hyman (RH) equation for l = p = 2, with compacton-anticompacton solutions of the L(l,p) Cooper-Shepard-Sodano (CSS) equation for p = 1 and l = 3. This study is performed using a Padé discretization of the RH and CSS equations. We find a significant difference in the behavior of compacton-anticompacton scattering. For the…

Removing trailing tails and delays induced by artificial dissipation for numerically stable compacton collisions

The numerical simulation of colliding solitary waves with compact support arising from the Rosenau-Hyman K(n,n) equation requires the addition of artificial dissipation for stability. The price to

Peakompactons: Peaked compact nonlinear waves

This paper is meant as an accessible introduction to/tutorial on the analytical construction and numerical simulation of a class of nonstandard solitary waves termed peakompactons. These peaked

Nonsemilinear one-dimensional PDEs: analysis of PT deformed models and numerical study of compactons

This thesis is based on the work done during my PhD studies and is roughly divided in two independent parts. The first part consists of Chapters 1 and 2 and is based on the two papers Cavaglia et al.

On the Nonlinear Perturbation Rosenau-Hyman Equation: A Model of Nonlinear Scattering Wave

We investigate a nonlinear wave phenomenon described by the perturbation Rosenau-Hyman equation within the concept of derivative with fractional order. We used the Caputo fractional derivative and we

On a Hamiltonian PDE arising in Magma Dynamics

In this article we discuss a new Hamiltonian PDE arising from a class of equations appearing in the study of magma, partially molten rock, in the Earth's interior. Under physically justifiable
