A similar type of nonlocal nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) system arises in both water waves and nonlinear optics. The nonlocality is due to a coupling between the first harmonic and a mean term. These systems are termed nonlinear Schrödinger with mean or NLSM systems. They were first derived in water waves by Benney-Roskes and later by Davey-Stewartson.… (More)

A nonlinear model of spin-wave excitation using a point contact in a thin ferromagnetic film is introduced. Large-amplitude magnetic solitary waves are computed, which help explain recent spin-torque experiments. Numerical simulations of the fully nonlinear model predict excitation frequencies in excess of 0.2 THz for contact diameters smaller than 6 nm.… (More)

We consider a class of nonlinear Schrödinger/Gross–Pitaevskii (NLS/GP) equations with periodic potentials having an even symmetry. We construct " solitons, " centered about any point of symmetry of the potential. For focusing (attractive) nonlinearities, these solutions bifurcate from the zero state at the lowest band-edge frequency into the semi-infinite… (More)

Dispersive shock waves ͑DSWs͒ are studied theoretically in the context of two-dimensional ͑2D͒ supersonic flow of a superfluid. Employing Whitham averaging theory for the repulsive Gross-Pitaevskii ͑GP͒ equation, suitable jump and entropy conditions are obtained for an oblique DSW, a fundamental building block for 2D flows with boundaries. In analogy to… (More)

We investigate propagating dark soliton solutions of the two-dimensional defocusing nonlinear Schrödinger or Gross-Pitaevskii (NLS-GP) equation that are transversely confined to propagate in an infinitely long channel. Families of single, vortex, and multilobed solitons are computed using a spectrally accurate numerical scheme. The multilobed solitons are… (More)

The nature of transverse instabilities of dark solitons for the (2+1)-dimensional defo-cusing nonlinear Schrödinger/Gross–Pitaevski ˘ i (NLS/GP) equation is considered. Special attention is given to the small (shallow) amplitude regime, which limits to the Kadomtsev–Petviashvili (KP) equation. We study analytically and numerically the eigenvalues of the… (More)

We compute and study localized nonlinear modes (solitons) in the semi-infinite gap of the focusing two-dimensional nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equation with various irregular lattice-type potentials. The potentials are characterized by large variations from periodicity, such as vacancy defects, edge dislocations, and a quasicrystal structure. We use a… (More)
