AB - We study the local propagation of singularities of solutions of $P(y,D) u= f(y,u),$ in $R^3,$ where $P(y,D)$ is a second order strictly hyperbolic operator and $f\in C^\infty.$ We choose a time function $t$ for $P(y,D)$ and assume that $f(y,u)$ is supported on $t>-1$ and that for $t<-2,$ $u$ is assumed to be the superposition of three conormal waves that intersect transversally at a point $q$ with $t(q)=0.$ We show that, provided the incoming waves are elliptic conormal distributions of appropriate type and $(\p_u^3 f)(q, u(q))\not=0,$ the nonlinear interaction will produce singularities on the light cone for $P$ over $q.$ Melrose and Ritter, and Bony, had independently shown that the solution $u$ is a Lagrangian distribution of an appropriate class associated with the light cone over $q$ and we show that under this non-degeneracy condition, $u$ is an elliptic Lagrangian distribution and we compute its principal part.
