Title: Stabilization of high-order solutions of the cubic nonlinear Schroedinger equation

Abstract

In this paper we consider the stabilization of nonfundamental unstable stationary solutions of the cubic nonlinear Schroedinger equation. Specifically, we study the stabilization of radially symmetric solutions with nodes and asymmetric complex stationary solutions. For the first ones, we find partial stabilization similar to that recently found for vortex solutions while for the later ones stabilization does not seem possible.

  • A large family of analytical solitary wave solutions to the generalized nonautonomous cubic-quintic nonlinear Schroedinger equation with time- and space-dependent distributed coefficients and external potentials are obtained by using a similarity transformation technique. We use the cubic nonlinearity as an independent parameter function, where a simple procedure is established to obtain different classes of potentials and solutions. The solutions exist under certain conditions and impose constraints on the coefficients depicting dispersion, cubic and quintic nonlinearities, and gain (or loss). We investigate the space-quadratic potential, optical lattice potential, flying bird potential, and potential barrier (well). Some interesting periodic solitary wave solutionsmore » corresponding to these potentials are then studied. Also, properties of a few solutions and physical applications of interest to the field are discussed. Finally, the stability of the solitary wave solutions under slight disturbance of the constraint conditions and initial perturbation of white noise is discussed numerically; the results reveal that the solitary waves can propagate in a stable way under slight disturbance of the constraint conditions and the initial perturbation of white noise.« less
  • We obtain exact spatiotemporal periodic traveling wave solutions to the generalized (3+1)-dimensional cubic-quintic nonlinear Schroedinger equation with spatial distributed coefficients. For restrictive parameters, these periodic wave solutions acquire the form of localized spatial solitons. Such solutions exist under certain conditions, and impose constraints on the functions describing dispersion, nonlinearity, and gain (or loss). We then demonstrate the nonlinear tunneling effects and controllable compression technique of three-dimensional bright and dark solitons when they pass unchanged through the potential barriers and wells affected by special choices of the diffraction and/or the nonlinearity parameters. Direct numerical simulation has been performed to show themore » stable propagation of bright soliton with 5% white noise perturbation.« less
  • A method is proposed for finding exact solutions of the nonlinear Schroedinger equations. It uses an ansatz in which the real and imaginary parts of the unknown function are connected by a linear relation with coefficients that depend only on the time. The method consists of constructing a system of ordinary differential equations whose solutions determine solutions of the nonlinear Schroedinger equation. The obtained solutions form a three-parameter family that can be expressed in terms of elliptic Jacobi functions and the incomplete elliptic integral of the third kind. In the general case, the obtained solutions are periodic with respect tomore » the spatial variable and doubly periodic with respect to the time. Special cases for which the solutions can be expressed in terms of elliptic Jacobi functions and elementary functions are considered in detail. Possible fields of practical applications of the solutions are mentioned.« less
  • We consider the existence of a dynamically stable soliton in the one-dimensional cubic-quintic nonlinear Schroedinger model with strong cubic nonlinearity management for periodic and random modulations. We show that the predictions of the averaged cubic-quintic nonlinear Schroedinger (NLS) equation and modified variational approach for the arrest of collapse coincide. The analytical results are confirmed by numerical simulations of a one-dimensional cubic-quintic NLS equation with a rapidly and strongly varying cubic nonlinearity coefficient.
  • Recurrence, pseudorecurrence, and chaotic solutions for a continuum Hamiltonian system in which there exist spatial patterns of solitary wave structures are investigated using the nonlinear Schrodinger equation (NSE) with cubic and quintic terms. The theoretical analyses indicate that there may exist Birkhoff`s recurrence for the arbitrary parameter values. The numerical experiments show that there may be Fermi-Pasta-Ulam (FPU) recurrence, pseudorecurrence, and chaos when different initial conditions are chosen. The fact that the system energy is effectively shared by finite Fourier modes suggests that it may be possible to describe the continuum system in terms of some effective degrees of freedom.
