Abstract:

A description is given of a number of numerical schemes to solve an evolution equation Korteweg-deVries that arises when modelling the propagation of water waves in a channel. The discussion also includes the results of numerical experiments made with each of the schemes. It is suggested, on the basis of these experiments, that one of the schemes may have discrete solitary-wave solutions. Author
