Abstract:The existence of a one-parameter family of periodic solutions representing longitudinal travelling waves is established for a one-dimensional lattice of identical particles with nearest-neighbour interaction. The potential is not given in closed form but is specified by only a few global properties. The lattice is either infinite or consists ofN particles on a circle with fixed circumference. Waves with low energy are sinusoidal and their properties are studied using bifurcation methods. Waves of high energy, however, are of solitary type, i.e. the excitation is strongly localized.
