## Abstract

Full dispersive models of water waves, such as the Whitham equation and the full dispersion Kadomtsev–Petviashvili (KP) equation, are interesting from both the physical and mathematical points of view. This paper studies analogous full dispersive KP models of nonlinear elastic waves propagating in a nonlocal elastic medium. In particular we consider anti-plane shear elastic waves which are assumed to be small-amplitude long waves. We propose two different full dispersive extensions of the KP equation in the case of cubic nonlinearity and ”negative dispersion”. One of them is called the Whitham-type full dispersion KP equation and the other one is called the BBM-type full dispersion KP equation. Most of the existing KP-type equations in the literature are particular cases of our full dispersion KP equations. We also introduce the simplified models of the new proposed full dispersion KP equations by approximating the operators in the equations. We show that the line solitary wave solution of a simplified form of the Whitham-type full dispersion KP equation is linearly unstable to long-wavelength transverse disturbances if the propagation speed of the line solitary wave is greater than a certain value. A similar analysis for a simplified form of the BBM-type full dispersion KP equation does not provide a linear instability assessment.
