Long Wave — Short Wave Interaction
Direct treatment of the partial differential equations.
A treatment of the Fourier transformed equations, that is then essentially a weak interaction treatment.
A WKBJ treatment which for this case can make use of the fact that a Lagragian formulation exists, so that the theory of adiabatic invariants as developed by Whitham (see Whitham(1974) for an extensive list of references) can be employed.
