The material of the correlated report delivered at the 18th International Symposium on Nonlinear Acoustics (ISNA-18) in July 2008 (Stockholm, Sweden) [1] is presented in a more comprehensive form [1]. These results have also been partially reported on in the lectures given at the 12th and 13th “Nonlinear Waves“ schools in Nizhni Novgorod [2, 3]. The aim of the paper is to briefly consider the directions of the development of nonlinear acoustics and its successes which have been at the center of attention lately.
