Reduction and bifurcation of traveling waves of the KdV-Burgers-Kuramoto equation

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this paper, the Lie symmetry analysis is performed on the KBK equation. By constructing its one-dimensional optimal system, we obtain four classes of reduced equations and corresponding group-invariant solutions. Particularly, the traveling wave equation, as an important reduced equation, is investigated in detail. Treating it as a singular perturbation system in $\mathbb{R}^3$, we study the phase space geometry of its reduced system on a two-dimensional invariant manifold by using the dynamical system methods such as tracking the unstable manifold of the saddle, studying the equilibria at infinity and discussing the homoclinic bifurcation and Poincaré bifurcation. Correspongding wavespeed conditions are determined to guarantee the existence of various bounded traveling waves of the KBK equation.
