We analyze self-focusing and singularity formation in the nonlinear Schrödinger equation (NLS) with high-order dispersion iψt±∆ψ+ |ψ|2σψ = 0, in the isotropic mixed-dispersion NLS iψt + ∆ψ + ǫ∆2ψ + |ψ|2σψ = 0, and in nonisotropic mixed-dispersion NLS equations which model propagation in fiber arrays.

A highly accurate numerical scheme is presented for the Serre system of partial differential equations, which models the propagation of dispersive shallow water waves in the fully-nonlinear regime. The fully-discrete scheme utilizes the Galerkin / finiteelement method based on smooth periodic splines in space, and an explicit fourth-order Runge-Kutta method… (More)

We present a unified approach for qualitative and quantitative analysis of stability and instability dynamics of positive bright solitons in multidimensional focusing nonlinear media with a potential (lattice), which can be periodic, periodic with defects, quasiperiodic, single waveguide, etc. We show that when the soliton is unstable, the type of… (More)

We calculate the critical exponent of nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equations with anisotropic negative fourth-order dispersion using an anisotropic Gagliardo–Nirenberg inequality. We also prove global existence, and in some cases uniqueness, for subcritical solutions and for critical solutions with small L2 norm, without making use of Strichartz-type… (More)

The standard explanation for multiple filamentation of laser beams is that breakup of cylindrical symmetry is initiated by noise in the input beam. In this study we propose an alternative deterministic explanation based on vectorial effects. We derive a scalar equation from the vector Helmholtz equation that describes self-focusing in the presence of… (More)

In this Letter we provide what is believed to be the first experimental evidence of suppression of the number of filaments for high-intensity laser pulses propagating in air by beam astigmatism. We also show that the number, pattern, and spatial stability of the filaments can be controlled by varying the angle that a focusing lens makes with the axial… (More)

Localized nonlinear modes, or solitons, are obtained for the two-dimensional nonlinear Schrödinger equation with various external potentials that possess large variations from periodicity, i.e., vacancy defects, edge dislocations, and quasicrystal structure. The solitons are obtained by employing a spectral fixed-point computational scheme. Investigation of… (More)

The dynamics and propagation of ultrashort optical pulses generated in mode-locked lasers are investigated. The mode locking process depends crucially on the gain and loss mechanisms inside the cavity. Analytical models are introduced that include dispersion management and gain-loss terms with energy and power saturation. Comparisons of the pulse dynamics… (More)
