Abstract(1995) PDF(706)
The existence of solutions for systems of nonlinear impulsive Volterra integral equations on the infinite interval R+ with an infinite number of moments of impulse effect in Banach spaces is studied.Some existence theorems of extremal solutions are obtained,which extend the related results for this class of equations on a finite interval with a finite number of moments of impulse effect.The results are demonstrated by means of an example of an infinite systems for impulsive integral equations.

2001, 22(6): 602-608.
Abstract(2004) PDF(944)
By Painlev analysis,traveling wave speed and solution of reaction-diffusion equations for the concentration of one species in one spatial dimension are in detail investigated.When the exponent of the creation term is larger than the one of the annihilation term,two typical cases are studied, one with the exact traveling wave solutions,yielding the values of speeds,the other with the series expansion solution,also yielding the value of speed.Conversely,when the exponent of creation term is smaller than the one of the annihilation term,two typical cases are also studied,but only for one of them,there is a series development solution,yielding the value of speed,and for the other,traveling wave solution cannot exist.Besides,the formula of calculating speeds and solutions of planar wave within the thin boundary layer are given for a class of typical excitable media.

HE Wu-zhou, YUAN Ming-shun
2001, 22(6): 625-632.
Abstract(1754) PDF(688)
Based on a comprehensive discussion of the calculation method for the threshold crossing statistics of zero mean valued,narrow banded Gaussian processes of various practical engineering problems,including the threshold-crossing probability,average number of crossing events per unit time,mean threshold-crossing duration and amplitude,a new simple numerical procedure is proposed for the efficient evaluation of mean threshold-crossing duration.A new dimensionaless parameter, called the threshold-crossing intensity,is defined as a measure of the threshold-crossing severity, which is equal to the ratio of the product of average number of crossing events per unit time and mean threshold-crossing duration and amplitude over the threshold.It is found,by the calculation results for various combinations of stochastic processes and different thresholds,that the threshold-crossing intensity,irrelevant of the threshold and spectral density of the process,is dependent only on the threshold-crossing probability.

2001, 22(6): 639-644.
Abstract(1935) PDF(692)
For the formal presentation about the definite problems of ultra-hyperbolic equations,the famous Asgeirsson mean value theorem has answered that Cauchy problems are ill-posed for ultra-hyperbolic partial differential equations of the second order.So it is important to develop Asgeirsson mean value theorem.The mean value of solution for the higher order equation has been discussed primarily and has no exact result at present.The mean value theorem for the higher order equation can be deduced and satisfied generalized biaxial symmetry potential equation by using the result of Asgeirsson mean value Theorem and the properties of derivation and integration.Moreover,the mean value formula can be obtained by using the regular solutions of potential equation and the special properties of Jacobi polynomials.Its converse theorem is also proved.The obtained results make it possible to discuss on continuation of the solutions and well posed problem.
Extended Mild-Slope Equation
HUANG Hu, DING Ping-xing, LÜ Xiu-hong
2001, 22(6): 645-650.
Abstract(2183) PDF(804)
The Hamiltonian formalism for surface waves and the mild-slope approximation were empolyed in handling the case of slowly varying three-dimensional currents and an uneven bottom,thus leading to an extended mild-slope equation.The bottom topography consists of two components:the slowly varying component whose horizontal length scale is longer than the surface wave length,and the fast varying component with the amplitude being smaller than that of the surface wave.The frequency of the fast varying depth component is,however,comparable to that of the surface waves. The extended mild-slope equation is more widely applicable and contains as special cases famous mild-slope equations below:the classical mild-slope equation of Berkhoff,Kirby.s mild-slope equation with current,and Dingemans.s mild-slope equation for rippled bed.The extended shallow water equations for ambient currents and rapidly varying topography are also obtained.

Abstract(2034) PDF(546)
The effect of nonlinearity on the free surface wave resonated by an incident flow over rippled beds,which consist of fast varying topography superimposed on an otherwise slowly varying mean depth,is studied using a WKBJ-type perturbation approach.Synchronous,superharmonic and in particular subharmonic resonance were selectively excited over the fast varying topography with corresponding wavelengths.For a steady current the dynamical system is autonomous and the possible nonlinear steady states and their stability were investigated.When the current has a small oscillatory component the dynamical system becomes non-autonomous,chaos is now possible.
