Stability and decay properties of solitary-wave solutions to the generalized BO-ZK equation. (English) Zbl 1325.35162

Summary: Studied here is the generalized Benjamin-Ono-Zakharov-Kuznetsov equation \[ u_t+u^pu_x+\alpha\mathscr{H}u_{xx}+\epsilon u_{xyy}=0,\;\;\;(x,y)\in \mathbb{R}^2,\;t\in \mathbb{R}^+, \] in two space dimensions. Here, \(\mathscr{H}\) is the Hilbert transform and subscripts denote partial differentiation. We classify when this equation possesses solitary-wave solutions in terms of the signs of the constants \(\alpha\) and \(\epsilon\) appearing in the dispersive terms and the strength of the nonlinearity. Regularity and decay properties of these solitary wave are determined and their stability is studied.
