In this paper we are concerned with accurate and stable spectral collocation solutions to initial-boundary value problems attached to some challenging nonlinear wave equations defined on unbounded domains. We argue that spectral collocation based on Hermite and sinc functions actually provide such solutions avoiding the empirical domain truncation or any shooting techniques.
