Abstract
An equation that describes the wave propagation in the disturbed medium was deduced from the Lighthill’s equation. The so-called perturbation-cumulative approximation was suggested to solve this equation and the period-doubling bifurcation solutions were given. The results obtained in this paper helps to provide insights to the mechanism of the turbulence formation.
