Models with wave dynamics and oscillations  in the solar system are presented. A solitonial solution (Korteweg-de Vries), for a density field, is related to the formations of planets. A new nonlinear equation for a solitonial, will be derived, and denoted ‘J-T equation’. The linearized version has solutions, which are small vibrations with eigen frequency proportional to the parameters describing the solitonial wave, around a constant level, which is 2/3 of the maximum solitonial density. The location and orbital motion of Mercury and Venus are compared with wave dynamics. The tidal effect for Earth is analysed in terms of dynamics. Related phenomena for other planetary objects are discussed in conjunction with assuming a Roche limit.

Keywords: Solitonial, Korteweg-de Vries, wave velocity, J-T equation, oscillation, Tidal effects, Roche limit
