Internal solitary waves and fronts in a weakly stratified fluid

By Nikolai MAKARENKO

Abstract

Large amplitude internal solitary waves in a continuously stratified fluid are discussed analytically. Long-wave scaling procedure is used in order to construct approximate plateau-shape solitary waves possessing table-top crests and narrow fronts. Existence of exact solutions is proved near the Boussinesq limit by means of generalized Lyapunov-Schmidt method
