Abstract : This paper is concerned about the mathematical aspects of the two model equations which describe nonlinear wave motions in a rotating fluid. We establish the local existence of solutions and show that singularities occur in a finite time under certain hypotheses. We also show that these equations admit nonconstant travelling wave solutions. (Author)
