Nonlinear transverse waves in deformed dispersive solids
(Elsevier, 2008)We present a phenomenological approach to dispersion in nonlinear elasticity. A simple, thermomechanically sound, constitutive model is proposed to describe the (nondissipative) properties of a hyperelastic dispersive ... 
Weierstrass's criterion and compact solitary waves
(American Physical Society, 20070417)Weierstrass's theory is a standard qualitative tool for single degree of freedom equations, used in classical mechanics and in many textbooks. In this Brief Report we show how a simple generalization of this tool makes it ...
