Abstract: In this paper, we study the existence of periodic traveling waves for the equations of the Shallow-water theory with a small viscosity. This small viscosity leads to a singularly perturbed problem. The slow-fast system involves a point where normal hyperbolicity breaks down. We first prove the existence of a slow manifold around this point. Then we show that there are no periodic solutions for small viscosity and describe completely the structure of a travelling wave.
Keywords: Shallow-water equations, roll waves, singular perturbations.
