Stability of Nonlinear Waves
Various stability results for nonlinear hyperbolic waves are described. Basic elements of a general theory such as decomposition into normal modes, time-invariants, hyperbolic-parabolic methods and time-asymptotic equivalence of physical systems are explained for physical models.
