A note on the amplitude modulation of symmetric regularized long-wave equation with quartic nonlinearity
MetadataShow full item record
We study the amplitude modulation of a symmetric regularized long-wave equation with quartic nonlinearity through the use of the reductive perturbation method by introducing a new set of slow variables. The nonlinear Schrodinger (NLS) equation with seventh order nonlinearity is obtained as the evolution equation for the lowest order term in the perturbation expansion. It is also shown that the NLS equation with seventh order nonlinearity assumes an envelope type of solitary wave solution.
