Stability and dynamics of viscous shock waves

  title={Stability and dynamics of viscous shock waves},
  author={Kevin Zumbrun},
We examine from a classical dynamical systems point of view stability, dynamics, and bifurcation of viscous shock waves and related solutions of nonlinear pde. The central object of our investigations is the Evans function: its meaning, numerical approximation, and behavior in various asymptotic limits.
