We demonstrate that in the parametrically driven Ginzburg-Landau equation arbitrarily small nongradient corrections lead to qualitative differences in the dynamical properties of domain walls in the vicinity of the transition from rest to motion. These differences originate from singular rotation of the eigenvector governing the transition. We present(More)
We demonstrate that, in contrast with what was previously believed, multihump solitary waves can be stable. By means of linear stability analysis and numerical simulations, we investigate the stability of two-and three-hump solitary waves governed by incoherent beam interaction in a saturable medium, providing a theoretical background for the stability of(More)
We report on the existence, stability and dynamical properties of two-dimensional self-localized vortices with azimuthal numbers up to 4 in a simple model for lasers with frequency-selective feedback.We build the full bifurcation diagram for vortex solutions and characterize the different dynamical regimes. The mathematical model used, which consists of a(More)
We present a feedback control method for the stabiliza- tion of unstable patterns and for the control of spatio-temporal disor- der. The control takes the form of a spatial modulation to the input pump, which is obtained via filtering in Fourier space of the output electric field. The control is powerful, exible and non-invasive: the feedback vanishes once(More)
We present a detailed analysis of the modulational instability (MI) of ground-state bright solitary solutions of two incoherently coupled nonlinear Schrödinger equations. Varying the relative strength of cross-phase and self-phase effects we show the existence and origin of four branches of MI of the two-wave solitary solutions. We give a physical(More)
