Title:Time-Periodic Solutions of the Benjamin-Ono Equation
Seminar:Computational and Applied Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:David Ambrose , Drexel University
Abstract:
We introduce a numerical method for computing time-periodic solutions of nonlinear partial differential equations. As an application of this method, we study time-periodic solutions of the Benjamin-Ono equation. We find a large number of such solutions. In particular, we find continua of genuinely time-periodic solutions connecting different traveling waves. This investigation leads us to exact, explicit formulas for these solutions. This is joint work with Jon Wilkening.
