Abstract

The concept of positons, i.e. certain multiparametric solutions of the Korteweg de Vries equation with new properties, is extended to the modified Korteweg de Vries equation. It is shown that the essential features of positons carry over to this case; the collision of positons, the solitary-wave-positon interaction and simple generalizations are discussed in detail. Suggestions for future research and possible applications of the present work are sketched.
