Asymptotic waves from the point of view of double-scale method

Adelina Georgescu, Liliana Restuccia


In this paper the asymptotic waves (smooth solutions of nonlinear hyperbolic partial differential equations (PDEs)) are introduced from the point of view of double scale method, giving a physical interpretation of the new (fast) variable, related to the surface across which the derivatives of the solution vary steeply.
