The “good” Boussinesq equation: long-time asymptotics

Christophe Charlier, Jonatan Lenells and Deng-Shan Wang

Vol. 16 (2023), No. 6, 1351–1388

We consider the initial-value problem for the “good” Boussinesq equation on the line. Using inverse scattering techniques, the solution can be expressed in terms of the solution of a 3 × 3-matrix Riemann–Hilbert problem. We establish formulas for the long-time asymptotics of the solution by performing a Deift–Zhou steepest descent analysis of a regularized version of this Riemann–Hilbert problem. Our results are valid for generic solitonless Schwartz class solutions whose space-average remains bounded as t .
