An approach based on parameter expansions is used to study some aspects of the sonic boom problem. The particular case of an accelerating or decelerating aircraft in level flight is considered. The main interest is in the far-field region. The effects of unsteady motion of the aircraft and non-linear propagation of the associated disturbance are introduced by defining appropriate frequency and amplitude parameters.
