The Linear KdV Equation with an Interface

  title={The Linear KdV Equation with an Interface},
  author={Bernard Deconinck and Natalie E. Sheils and David A. Smith},
The interface problem for the linear Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equation in one-dimensional piecewise homogeneous domains is examined by constructing an explicit solution in each domain. The location of the interface is known and a number of compatibility conditions at the boundary are imposed. We provide an explicit characterization of sufficient interface conditions for the construction of a solution using Fokas’s Unified Transform Method. The problem and the method considered here extend that… CONTINUE READING
