Description:  A numerical study of nonlinear dispersive wave models with SpecTraVVave. In nonlinear dispersive evolution equations, the competing effects of nonlinearity and dispersion make a number of interesting phenomena possible. In the current work, the focus is on the numerical approximation of travelingwave solutions of such equations. We describe our efforts to write a dedicated mathsf{Python} code which is able to compute travelingwave solutions of nonlinear dispersive equations in a very general form. par The mathsf{SpecTraVVave} code uses a continuation method coupled with a spectral projection to compute approximations of steady symmetric solutions of this equation. The code is used in a number of situations to gain an understanding of travelingwave solutions. The first case is the Whitham equation, where numerical evidence points to the conclusion that the main bifurcation branch features three distinct points of interest, namely a turning point, a point of stability inversion, and a terminal point which corresponds to a cusped wave. par The second case is the socalled modified BenjaminOno equation where the interaction of two solitary waves is investigated. It is found that two solitary waves may interact in such a way that the smaller wave is annihilated. The third case concerns the Benjamin equation which features two competing dispersive operators. In this case, it is found that bifurcation curves of periodic travelingwave solutions may cross and connect high up on the branch in the nonlinear regime.
