obtained by Fuchssteiner and Fokas [9] by the method of recursion operators, is in dimensionless space-time variables (x, t) a model for the unidirectional propagation of shallow water waves over a flat bottom, u(t, x) representing the free surface and k > 0 being a parameter related to the critical shallow water speed; cf. [2]. Camassa and Holm [1] derived (1) from physical principles1 and constructed a Lax pair. Equation (1) is integrable ([2], [3], [8], [10]); it models permanent and… CONTINUE READING
