    We consider the evolution of an initial disturbance described by the modified Korteweg-de Vries equation with a positive coefficient of the cubic nonlinear term, so that it can support solitons. Our primary aim is to determine the circumstances which can lead to the formation of solitons and/or...

    The transformation of a soliton in a zone with a sign-changing nonlinearity has been investigated on the basis of the Korteweg–de Vries equation. It is shown that after passage through the critical zone a soliton with opposite polarity is formed in the wave field and, together with the...

    We study the extended Korteweg-de Vries equation, that is, the usual Korteweg-de Vries equation but with the inclusion of an extra cubic nonlinear term, for the case when the coefficient of the cubic nonlinear term has an opposite polarity to that of the coefficient of the linear dispersive...
