On some systems for internal wave propagation

A. Durán and D. Mitsotakis

Abstract
We consider a system of Benjamin-Ono type for the propagation of internal waves over a horizontal bottom and a rigid lid. First we study the existence of solitary waves by numerical means while in a special case we present analytical formulas of solitary waves that decay with a polynomial order. An efficient numerical method for the integration of the specific system will be introduced and checked with several experiments, including solitary-wave interactions and stability. Some comparisons with the classical Benjamin-Ono equation will also be made.
