This is an invited short update of the topic covered by the review article, which aims to briefly survey progress made in theoretical and experimental studies of multidimensional solitons since the publication of the review. The Commentary was invited as an addition to the original review article that will be reprinted in an e-book celebrating the 50th anniversary of Journal of Physics B (incorporating Journal of Optics B: Quantum and Semiclassical Optics).

On general solitons in the parity-time-symmetric defocusing nonlinear Schrödinger equation

Via the Hirota bilinear method combined with the Kadomtsev–Petviashvili (KP) hierarchy reduction method, two types of solitons, namely general solitons on a background of periodic waves and rational

Riemann–Hilbert method and multi-soliton solutions of the Kundu-nonlinear Schrödinger equation

In this work, we study the Kundu-nonlinear Schrodinger (Kundu-NLS) equation (so-called the extended NLS equation), which can describe the propagation of the waves in dispersive media. A Lax spectral

Nonlinear modes in spatially confined spin–orbit-coupled Bose–Einstein condensates with repulsive nonlinearity

It was found that spatially confined spin-orbit (SO) coupling, which can be induced by illuminating Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs) with a Gaussian laser beam, can help trap a spinor Bose gas in

Existence and Numerical Computation of Standing Wave Solutions for a System of Two Coupled Schrödinger Equations

In this paper, we consider the existence of a type of stationary wave of a system of two coupled Schrodinger equations with variable coefficients, which can be employed to describe the interaction

Self-decelerating Airy-Elegant-Laguerre-Gaussian wave packets in free space

Abstract We have analytically and numerically investigated the propagation of three-dimensional self-decelerating Airy-Elegant-Laguerre-Gaussian (AiELG) wave packets by solving the (3+1)D free-space

Abstract.We study a (3+1)-dimensional variable-coefficient nonlinear Schrödinger equation with different diffractions and power-law nonlinearity in PT-symmetric potentials. Considering different

Nonautonomous rogue wave solutions and numerical simulations for a three-dimensional nonlinear Schrödinger equation

We consider nonautonomous rogue wave solutions of a $$(3+1)$$(3+1)-dimensional (3D) nonlinear Schrödinger equation (NLSE) with time–space modulation terms, the dispersion and the nonlinear

General Jacobi elliptic function expansion method applied to the generalized (3 + 1)-dimensional nonlinear Schrödinger equation

We generalize the Jacobi elliptic function expansion method used to solve the (3 + 1)-dimensional nonlinear Schrödinger equation for the case of an arbitrary inverse of an elliptic integral. Among

Erratum to: Optical temporal rogue waves in the generalized inhomogeneous nonlinear Schrödinger equation with varying higher-order even and odd terms

We investigate optical temporal rogue waves of the generalized nonlinear Schrodinger (NLS) equation with higher-order odd and even terms and space- and time-modulated coefficients, which includes the

Two-dimensional vector rogue wave excitations and controlling parameters in the two-component Gross–Pitaevskii equations with varying potentials

We study two-dimensional (2D) vector rogue waves and interactions of the 2D inhomogeneous two-component Gross–Pitaevskii (GP) equations with varying potentials, nonlinearities, gain or loss, and
