We establish conditions for the existence of periodic solutions of nonlinear, second-order difference equations of the form y(t + 2) + by(t + 1) + cy(t) = f (y(t)), where c = 0 and f : R → R is continuous. In our main result we assume that f exhibits sublinear growth and that there is a constant β > 0 such that u f (u) > 0 whenever |u| ≥ β. For such an(More)
We study possibilities to suppress the transverse modulational instability (MI) of dark-soliton stripes in two-dimensional Bose-Einstein condensates (BEC's) and self-defocusing bulk optical waveguides by means of quasi-one-dimensional structures. Adding an external repulsive barrier potential (which can be induced in BEC by a laser sheet, or by an embedded(More)
The reduced dynamics for dark and bright soliton chains in the one-dimensional nonlinear Schrödinger equation is used to study the behavior of collective compression waves corresponding to Toda lattice solitons. We coin the term hypersoliton to describe such solitary waves riding on a chain of solitons. It is observed that in the case of dark soliton(More)
