    Abstract:
    The inverse scattering method is used to determine the distribution limit as ϵ → 0 of the solution u(x, t, ϵ) of the initial value problem. U t − 6uu x + ϵ 2 u xxx = 0, u(x, 0) = v(x), where v(x) is a positive bump which decays sufficiently fast as x x→±α. The case v(x) ≪ 0 has been solved by Peter D. Lax and C. David Levermore [8], [9] , [10]. The computation of the distribution limit of u(x, t, ϵ) as ϵ → 0 is reduced to a quadratic maximization problem, which is then solved.
