In this paper, the authors consider the Harry-Dym equation on the line with decaying initial value. They construct the solution of the Harry-Dym equation via the solution of a 2 × 2 matrix Riemann-Hilbert problem in the complex plane. Further, one-cusp soliton solution is expressed in terms of the Riemann-Hilbert problem.

    We consider the initial value problem for the focusing nonlinear Schr�dinger equation with �step-like� initial data: q(x, 0) = 0 for x = 0 and q(x, 0) = Aexp(-2iBx) for x > 0, where A > 0 and B ? R are constants. The paper aims at studying the long-time asymptotics of the solution...

    The second-order accurate Lax--Wendroff scheme is based on the first three terms of a Taylor expansion in time in which the time derivatives are replaced by space derivatives using the governing evolution equations. The space derivatives are then approximated by central differencing. In this...

    We study the elliptic sine-Gordon equation in the quarter plane using a spectral transform approach. We determine the Riemann-Hilbert problem associated with well-posed boundary value problems in this domain and use it to derive a formal representation of the solution. Our analysis is based on a...

    It has been shown recently that the unique, global solution of the Dirichlet problem of the nonlinear Schr�dinger equation on the half-line can be expressed through the solution of a 2�2 matrix Riemann�Hilbert problem. This problem is specified by the spectral functions...

    Two models for a crack in an unbounded two-dimensional micropolar solid are analysed. The first one concerns plane-strain deformation, while the second problem assumes the conditions of antiplane-strain loading. In both cases, one of three modes is uncoupled, while the other two are coupled. For...
