Peculiarities of behaviour of nonlinear quasi-transverse waves in an elastic medium in case of low anisotropy. (Russian) Zbl 0718.73028
It is shown, that in evolution of a wave packet (for near-“rotatory” waves) transient stages (“catastrophes”) occur, resulting in the emission of short intensive waves of another family. Such waves could be observed experimentally.
