Using analytic methods from the dynamical systems theory, some new nonlinear wave equations are investigated, which have exact explicit parametric representations of breaking loop-solutions under some fixed parameter conditions. It is shown that these parametric representations are associated with some families of open level-curves of traveling wave systems corresponding to such nonlinear wave equations, each of which lies in an area bounded by a singular straight line and the stable and the unstable manifolds of a saddle point of such a system. © 2010 World Scientific Publishing Company.
