Abstract

A Backlund transformation for an evolution equation (ut+u ux)x+u=0 transformed into new coordinates is derived. An inverse scattering problem is formulated. The inverse scattering method has a third order eigenvalue problem. A procedure for finding the exact N-soliton solution of the Vakhnenko equation via the inverse scattering method is described.
