Abstract. The problem of existence of solitary wave solutions to some higherorder model evolution equations arising from water wave theory is discussed. A simple direct method for finding monotone solitary wave solutions is introduced, and by exhibiting explicit necessary and sufficient conditions, it is illustrated that a model admit exact sech solitary wave solutions. Moreover, it is proven that the only fifthorder perturbations of the KortewegdeVries equation that admit solitary wave solutions reducing to the usual onesoliton solutions in the limit are those admitting families of explicit sech solutions. Key words, solitary wave, nonlinear evolution equation, water waves, singular perturbation AMS(MOS) subject classifications. 76B25, 35Q51, 35Q53, 35B25, 76B15

The notion of multidimensional quadrilateral lattice is introduced. It is shown that such a lattice is characterized by a system of integrable discrete nonlinear equations. Different useful formulations of the system are given. The geometric construction of the lattice is also discussed and, in particular, it is clarified the number of initial–boundary data which define the lattice uniquely.
A refined global wellposedness result for Schrödinger equations with derivative
 SIAM J. Math. Anal

"... Abstract. In this paper we prove that the 1D Schrödinger equation with derivative in the nonlinear term is globally wellposed in H s, for s> 1 2 for data small in L2. To understand the strength of this result one should recall that for s < 1 the Cauchy problem is illposed, in the 2 sense tha ..."

Abstract. In this paper we prove that the 1D Schrödinger equation with derivative in the nonlinear term is globally wellposed in H s, for s> 1 2 for data small in L2. To understand the strength of this result one should recall that for s < 1 the Cauchy problem is illposed, in the 2 sense that uniform continuity with respect to the initial data fails. The result follows from the method of almost conserved energies, an evolution of the “Imethod ” used by the same authors. The same argument can be used to prove that any to obtain global wellposedness for s> 2 3 quintic nonlinear defocusing Schrödinger equation on the line is globally wellposed for large data in H s, for s> 1 2. 1.

This survey article reviews the theory and application of homoclinic orbits to equilibria in reversible continuoustime dynamical systems, where the homoclinic orbit and the equilibrium are both reversible. The focus is on evenorder reversible systems in four or more dimensions. Local theory, generic argument, and global existence theories are examined for each qualitatively distinct linearisation. Several recent results, such as coalescence caused by nontransversality and the reversible orbitflip bifurcation are covered. A number of open problems are highlighted. Applications are reviewed to systems arising from a variety of disciplines. With the aid of numerical methods, three examples are presented in detail, one of which is infinite dimensional. 1 Introduction Classical Hamiltonian dynamical systems with quadratic kinetic energy are reversible in the sense that they are invariant under a reversal of time and all momentum variables. The concept of reversible systems in their ow...

Three different decompositions of the algebra of pseudodifferential operators and the corresponding rmatrices are considered. Three associated classes of nonlinear integrable equations in 1+1 and 2+1 dimensions are discussed within the framework of generalized Lax equations and Sato's approach. The 2+1dimensional hierarchies are associated with the KadomtsevPetviashvili (KP) equation, the modified KP equation and a Dym equation, respectively. Reductions of the general hierarchies lead to other known integrable 2+1dimensional equations as well as to a variety of integrable equations in 1+1 dimensions. It is shown, how the multiHamiltonian structure of the 1+1dimensional equations can be obtained from the underlying rmatrices. Further, intimate relations between the equations associated with the three different rmatrices are revealed. The three classes are related by Darboux theorems originating from gauge transformations and reciprocal links of the Lax operators. These connect...

The basic theory of internal solitary waves is developed, with the main emphasis on environmental situations, such as the many occurrences of suchwaves in shallow coastal seas and in the atmospheric boundary layer. Commencing with the equations of motion for an inviscid, incompressible densitystratified fluid, we describe asymptotic reductions to model longwave equations, such as the wellknown Kortewegde Vries equation. We then describe various solitary wave solutions, and propose a variablecoefficient modified Kortewegde Vries equations as an appropriate evolution equation to describe internal solitary waves in environmental situations, when the effects of a variable background and dissipation need to be taken into account. 1. INTRODUCTION Solitary waves are finiteamplitude waves of permanent form which owe their existence to a balance between nonlinear wavesteepening processes and linear wave dispersion. Typically, they consist of a single isolated wave of elevation, or depr...
