Section of Engineering Mechanics: of Department of Applied Mathematics and Physics, Kyoto University. Research interests: .....2. Nonlinear Waves in Fluids Some of the behavior of water waves or internal waves ( waves in densitystratified fluid ) cannot be explained by the linear theory. This behavior has been examined using a variety of theories on nonlinear waves. The most famous one among them is the theory of solitons, solitary waves which do not lose their identity through their collision with each other. In our Section, generation of nonlinear waves due to the external forcing such as the oscillation of the container or the movement of a submerged object, pattern formation in the generated waves, resonant interaction among waves, and threedimensional nonlinear waves are studied, using the soliton theory, the theory of nonlinear dynamical systems, and singular perturbation theory. ......
