Abstract : This paper studies one-dimensional acceleration waves and higher-order waves in general nonlinear materials with memory. Explicit expressions are derived for the time-dependence of the amplitude of such waves without assuming the material ahead of the waves to be undistorted or homogeneous. (Author)
