Summary: The stability of small-amplitude steady-state periodic solutions of \[ (*)\quad u_ t+uu_ x+\alpha u_{xxx}+u_{xxxxx}=0,\quad \alpha =\pm 1 \] in the neighbourhood of \(k=k_ n\) are investigated. The results of the investigations are consistent with those of S. E. Haupt and J. P. Boyd [Wave Motion 10, 83-98 (1988; Zbl 0628.76023)]. In Sec. 2. The stability of periodic waves not lying in the neighborhood of resonance is considered. It is shown that in the region of instability when \(\alpha =1\) steady-state solutions of the soliton type with oscillatory structure may exist. In Sec. 3. The properties of certain exact solutions - periodic waves and solitons - are studied in relation to the nature of the singular points of the dynamical system derived from (*). In Sec. 4, the evolution of rapidly decreasing Cauchy data is considered.
