Inviscid traveling waves are ghost-like phenomena that do not appear in reality because of their instability. However, they are the reason for the complexity of the traveling wave theory of reaction diffusion equations and understanding them will help to resolve related puzzles. In this article, we obtain the existence, the uniqueness and the regularity of inviscid traveling waves under a general monostable nonlinearity that includes non-Lipschitz continuous reaction terms. Solution structures are obtained such as the thickness of the tail and the free boundaries. (C) 2017 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
