Journal Article
Wattis, J. A. (2019). Asymptotic approximations to travelling waves in the diatomic fermi-pasta-ulam lattice. Mathematics in Engineering, 1(2), 327-342. doi:10.3934/mine.2019.2.327

We construct high-order approximate travelling waves solutions of the diatomic Fermi-Pasta-Ulam lattice using asymptotic techniques which are valid for arbitrary mass ratios. Separately small amplitude ansatzs are made for the motion of the lighter a... Read More
