Nonlinear balance and exchange of stability in dynamics of solitons, peakons, ramps/cliffs and leftons in a 1+1 nonlinear evolutionary PDE. (English) Zbl 1010.35066
Summary: We study exchange of stability in the dynamics of solitary wave solutions under changes in the nonlinear balance in a 1+1 evolutionary partial differential equation related both to shallow water waves and to turbulence. We find that solutions of the equation \(m_t+um_x+bu_xm=\nu m_{xx}\) with \(m=u-\alpha^2u_{xx}\) for fluid velocity \(u(x,t)\) change their behavior at the special values \(b=0,\pm 1,\pm 2,\pm 3\).
