Abstract:

The overall objective of the work done under this contract is to determine the feasibility of using solitons, rather than sinusoidal wavetrains, as the basic building blocks in a theory of water waves. The goal of devising such a revised description is to model phenomena that occur over longer time scales than can be adequately described in terms of sinusoidal wavetrains. This report summarizes the work done in thie direction during the first year of this contract. Author
