Title: Scattering transform for nonstationary Schroedinger equation with bidimensionally perturbed N-soliton potential

Abstract

In the framework of the extended resolvent approach the direct and inverse scattering problems for the nonstationary Schroedinger equation with a potential being a perturbation of the N-soliton potential by means of a generic bidimensional smooth function decaying at large spaces are introduced and investigated. The initial value problem of the Kadomtsev-Petviashvili I equation for a solution describing N wave solitons on a generic smooth decaying background is then linearized, giving the time evolution of the spectral data.

  • Classical solutions of the massive Thirring model are found that describe the fermion constituent solitons of multisoliton solutions of the sine-Gordon equation. The construction of these fermion solutions is based on the inverse scattering transform for the sine-Gordon equation. It is shown that the equations of the inverse scattering formalism transform into the equations of the massive Thirring model through Coleman's correspondences between the two theories. The charge structure associated with multisoliton solutions is made very explicit by these correspondences. The 1-soliton, 2-soliton, and breather cases are discussed in detail. (AIP)
  • A study is made of the many-soliton component of the solutions of the nonlinear Schroedinger equation that are obtained from the N-soliton (in particular, one-soliton) solutions by restricting the support (with respect to x) of the initial (at t = O) function to an arbitrary finite or semi-infinite interval.
  • We consider one-dimensional stationary position-dependent effective mass quantum model and derive a generalized Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equation in (1+1) dimension through Lax pair formulation, one being the effective mass Schr√∂dinger operator and the other being the time-evolution of wave functions. We obtain an infinite number of conserved quantities for the generated nonlinear equation and explicitly show that the new generalized KdV equation is an integrable system. Inverse scattering transform method is applied to obtain general solution of the nonlinear equation, and then N-soliton solution is derived for reflectionless potentials. Finally, a special choice has been made for the variable massmore » function to get mass-deformed soliton solution. The influence of position and time-dependence of mass and also of the different representations of kinetic energy operator on the nature of such solitons is investigated in detail. The remarkable features of such solitons are demonstrated in several interesting figures and are contrasted with the conventional KdV-soliton associated with constant-mass quantum model.« less
  • The nonlinear Schroedinger (NLS) equation describes the spatio-temporal evolution of the complex envelope function of a narrow-banded, nonlinear wave train. Here I exploit the nonlinear Fourier structure of NLS, known as the inverse scattering transform, to study nonlinear periodic modulations in the spectral domain. Numerical algorithms are presented for both the direct and inverse scattering transforms of the [open quotes]defocusing[close quotes] NLS equation with periodic boundary conditions. A discrete algorithm is given for computing the monodromy matrix of periodic spectral theory and the direct scattering transform is then computed from the elements of this matrix. A fast algorithm for themore » inverse scattering transform in terms of the hyperelliptic function representation is also given; solutions to the defocusing NLS equation are determined by a linear superposition of these nonlinear oscillation modes. The direct algorithm uses computer time proportional to M[sup 2], where M is the number of points in the discrete envelope function of the wave train. The inverse scattering algorithm is [open quotes]fast[close quotes] in the sense that it is M[sup 3], this contrasts to the periodic theta-function inverse problem for NLS which is M[sup 4]. Several wave train solutions of NLS are considered and their inverse scattering transform spectra and nonlinear Fourier decompositions are discussed. Application of the method to the analysis of computer generated or experimentally measured space or time series is the major motivation for this work. 53 refs., 27 figs.« less
  • The inverse scattering transform for the vector defocusing nonlinear Schroedinger (NLS) equation with nonvanishing boundary values at infinity is constructed. The direct scattering problem is formulated on a two-sheeted covering of the complex plane. Two out of the six Jost eigenfunctions, however, do not admit an analytic extension on either sheet of the Riemann surface. Therefore, a suitable modification of both the direct and the inverse problem formulations is necessary. On the direct side, this is accomplished by constructing two additional analytic eigenfunctions which are expressed in terms of the adjoint eigenfunctions. The discrete spectrum, bound states and symmetries ofmore » the direct problem are then discussed. In the most general situation, a discrete eigenvalue corresponds to a quartet of zeros (poles) of certain scattering data. The inverse scattering problem is formulated in terms of a generalized Riemann-Hilbert (RH) problem in the upper/lower half planes of a suitable uniformization variable. Special soliton solutions are constructed from the poles in the RH problem, and include dark-dark soliton solutions, which have dark solitonic behavior in both components, as well as dark-bright soliton solutions, which have one dark and one bright component. The linear limit is obtained from the RH problem and is shown to correspond to the Fourier transform solution obtained from the linearized vector NLS system.« less
