# Bright solitary waves on a torus: Existence, stability and dynamics for the nonlinear Schrödinger model

@article{DAmbroise2019BrightSW, title={Bright solitary waves on a torus: Existence, stability and dynamics for the nonlinear Schr{\"o}dinger model}, author={Jennie D’Ambroise and Panayotis G. Kevrekidis and Peter Schmelcher}, journal={arXiv: Pattern Formation and Solitons}, year={2019} }

Motivated by recent developments in the realm of matter waves, we explore the potential of creating solitary waves on the surface of a torus. This is an intriguing perspective due to the role of curvature in the shape and dynamics of the coherent structures. We find different families of bright solitary waves for attractive nonlinearities including ones localized in both angular directions, as well as waves localized in one direction and homogeneous in the other. The waves localized in both… Expand

It is uncovered that stable solitons with this structure can be created, without any linear potential, in the single-component setting with the strength of repulsive nonlinearity growing fast enough from the center to the periphery, for both steep and smooth modulation profiles. Expand

The recently introduced model of self-trapping supported by a spatially growing strength of a repulsive nonlinearity gives rise to robust vortex-soliton tori, i.e., three-dimensional vortex solitons, with topological charges S≥1, which are nearly exactly reproduced in an analytical form by the Thomas-Fermi approximation.

An effective particle picture is developed and confirms that the deviation of the observed oscillation frequencies from the asymptotic prediction nu(z)/sqrt 2, where nu( z) is the longitudinal trapping frequency, results from the dimensionality of the system and the soliton interactions. Expand
