An important result of this research is a new model of periodic wavs of finite amplitude, propagating without change of form in shallow water. The model is analytic and deterministic, and it shows good agreement with laboratory experiments. A second important result is the development of a rigorous method to find exponentially small effects, which lie beyond all orders in conventional asymptotic expansion. Keywords Nonlinear wave motion Shallow water waves, Kadomtsev-Petviashvili equation Asymptotics beyond all orders Integrable models.
