    • Abstract


      The object of the present paper is to investigate the propagation of quasi-transverse waves in a nonlinear perfectly conducting nonhomogeneous elastic medium in the presence of a uniform magnetic field transverse to the direction of wave propagation. Different types of figures have been drawn to exhibit the distortion of waves due to the presence of magnetic field and the nonhomogeneous nature of the medium. Formation of shocks has also been numerically discussed.
