Abstract: The differential equation

*t*and a slow time . We redevelop this asymptotic theory in such a form that the approximation consists of a series of simple functions of , called carriers. (This series may be thought of as a Fourier series.) The coefficients of the terms of this series are functions of

*t*. They are called envelopes and they modulate the carriers. Our computational method consists of determining numerical approximations to a finite collection of these envelopes. One of the principal merits of our method is its accuracy for the nonlinear problem.
