Stability and instability of traveling wave solutions to nonlinear wave equations


This talk deals with semilinear wave equations where the nonlinearity depends on the gradient. While the stability of the trivial solution is fairly well understood, I will present recent results on the stability of solutions of the form f(t-x), namely a stability result in certain cases and an instability result in certain other cases.
