Title: Existence of solitons in infinite lattice

Abstract

We consider necessary conditions for existence of optical solitons in one-dimensional nonlinear periodic layered array. We show analytically that in the array with the cubic-quintic nonlinearity bistable solitons are possible whereas for the Kerr nonlinearity they never exist. We investigate asymptotic behavior of the soliton amplitude at infinity. With help of the asymptotic a numerical algorithm for searching the solitons may be developed so that finding a soliton on finite interval is simultaneously the numerical proof of its existence on infinite interval.

  • In this paper classical non-topological soliton configurations are considered in a theory with a local U(1) symmetry. Their existence, stability against dispersion into free particles are studied numerically. As in the case of Friedberg, Lee, and Sirlin with a global U(1) symmetry, also in this case there are two critical charges; Q{sub c} for the existence and Q{sub s} for the stability of the non-topological soliton configurations. Our numerical results show that the magnitudes of both Q{sub c} and Q{sub s} increase as the magnitude of the gauge coupling constant e is increased with the other parameters kept at fixedmore » values.« less
  • Conditions for the existence of localized stationary states of a general class of nonlinear Dirac equations are obtained. The nonlinearities considered are such that, in the field equation, they approach zero faster than the field itself.
  • The usual description of dust-modified ion-acoustic and dust-acoustic solitons in plasmas containing negative dust is in terms of Boltzmann distributions for the hotter species. In the dust-modified ion-acoustic regime, besides positive potential solitons, negative structures can also be generated, for electrons with a polytropic index {gamma}{sub e}{ne}1, as well as for Boltzmann electrons, subject to conditions that are not too stringent. These general conditions were previously either ignored or given for weakly nonlinear solutions only. In the dust-acoustic domain in plasmas with negatively charged dust, however, only negative potential solitons can occur, even when the lighter species have non-Boltzmann distributions.more » For Boltzmann electrons only an infinite dust compression limits the soliton amplitudes and corresponding Mach numbers, whereas for {gamma}{sub e}{ne}1, the electron density, too, can be a limiting factor for the existence domain of such solitons.« less

  • In this paper, we give a proof of the existence of stationary dark soliton solutions or heteroclinic orbits of nonlinear equations of Schroedinger type with periodic inhomogeneous nonlinearity. The result is illustrated with examples of dark solitons for cubic and photorefractive nonlinearities.
