Abstract
The existence of travelling heteroclinic waves for the sineGordon lattice is proved for a linear interaction of neighbouring atoms. The asymptotic states are chosen such that the action functional is finite. The proof relies on a suitable concentrationcompactness argument, which can be shown to hold even though the associated functional has no subadditive structure.
