In order to analyze the stability of solutions in a wide class of physical problems, one usually linearizes the field equations or expands the field variables in a physically unclear small parameter. The multiple-scale is particularly useful for construction uniformly valid (wavelike) approximations to solutions of perturbation problems. The method originates from the WKB-method in order to construct approximate solutions of the non-linear Schrodinger equation.

I. Example: the non-linear Schrodinger equation (NLSE).

The NLSE is a classical field equation, but after canonical quantization, it becomes a quantum field theory. Let us consider the wave equation

    \[\Phi_{tt}-\Phi_{xx}=4\lambda (m^2-\Phi^2)\Phi\]

The degenerated global minima occur at \pm m. For the Bogomolny bound, one has the static kink solution \Phi(x)=m\tanh(\sqrt{2\lambda}m(x-a)). Applying a Lorentz boost, one obtains the moving kink


The analytic general solution is hard to find.

Let nu now consider the relevant fields V_i in a point {\bf x} of a manifold, dependent on ({\bf x},\xi,\chi, .. ):

    \[V_i=\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}\frac{1}{\omega^n}F_i^{(n)}({\bf x},\xi,\chi ,..)\]

II. Application to GRT.

Let us consider a
