Abstract

We consider an infinite lattice model, where particles interact with nearest neighbour (NN) and next-to-nearest neighbours (NNN); the NN and NNN springs act against each other to mimic the Lennard-Jones potential. The existence of subsonic waves homoclinic to exponentially small periodic oscillations is shown as well as the existence of supersonic periodic solutions. The proofs rely on methods from normal form and centre space analysis for the homoclinic solutions and centre manifold analysis for the periodic solutions.
