Travelling wave solutions for inhomogeneous acoustic gravity waves
Abstract
Traveling wave solutions to an inhomogeneous hyperbolic equation for acoustic gravity waves in an isothermal atmosphere are investigated. A traveling wave solution of rank one is obtained in terms of a single ordinary differential equation involving the velocity, pressure and density of the system. The solution obtained by Chiu (1970) for acoustic gravity waves is found to be a special case of the present solution, and other solutions corresponding to the boundary conditions of acoustic gravity waves in an isothermal atmosphere are presented.
