Abstract

We consider waves at the interface of a two-layer fluid. The upper layer is assumed to be isothermal and compressible with a density profile decreasing exponentially with height up to infinity. The lower layer is assumed to be incompressible with constant density bounded below by a rigid bottom with an obstruction of compact support. By a unified asymptotic method, a stationary forced modified KdV equation is derived when the KdV theory fails. New steady solutions are discovered and numerical results are also presented.
