Reflection and Collision of Solitary Wave Solutions of the Nonlinear Klein-Gordon EquationWave Motion
AbstractThe reflection of solitary wave solutions of the cubically nonlinear Klein-Gordon equation from rigid and nonrigid boundaries, and their mutual interaction are studied using finite-difference numerical techniques. The instability of these solutions is shown to be removed by incorporating a small amount of a fifth-order saturating nonlinearity in the system.
