We report analytical and numerical solutions describing the evolution of the coherent structure of bubbles and spikes in the Richtmyer-Meshkov instability in supernovae. It is shown that the dynamics of the flow is essentially non-local, and the nonlinear Richtmyer-Meshkov bubble flattens and decelerates.
