Solitary waves of two-dimensional modified Kawahara equation

Katson Vladimir Markovich, Saratov State University

Equations of this type describe a number of real-life processes like wave motion under ice mantle or propagation of waves of longitudinal deformation in thin cylinder shell. Using «Simplest Equation Method» exact solitary-wave solutions of the two-dimensional Kawahara Equation were obtained. On the basis of implicit pseudospectral method the numerical investigation is carried out. Regimes of two-dimensional deformation waves with classic solitary behavior were discovered.
