### Asymptotics for the modified Boussinesq equation in one space dimension

#### Abstract

We consider the Cauchy problem for the modified Boussinesq equation in one space dimension \begin{equation*} \begin {cases} w_{tt}=a^{2}\partial _{x}^{2}w-\partial _{x}^{4}w+\partial _{x}^{2} ( w^{3} ) ,\text{ } ( t,x ) \in \mathbb{R}^{2}, \\ w ( 0,x ) =w_{0} ( x ) ,\text{ }w_{t} ( 0,x ) =w_{1} ( x ) ,\text{ }x\in \mathbb{R}\text{,} \end {cases} \end{equation*} where $a > 0.$ We study the large time asymptotics of solutions to the Cauchy problem for the modified Boussinesq equation. We apply the factorization technique developed recently in papers [5], [6], [7], [8].
