Wobbling double sine-Gordon kinks
We study the collision of a kink and an antikink with the excited vibrational mode in the double sine-Gordon model. The vibrational energy of the wobbling kinks can turn into translational energyExpand


Inelastic interactions of solitons in nearly integrable systems. I
Inelastic interactions of kinks and breathers in the sine-Gordon equation with different perturbations are considered. In the presence of the dissipative perturbation the break-up of a breather intoExpand
Resonance structure in kink-antikink interactions in φ4 theory
Abstract We present new numerical and theoretical results concerning kink-antikink collisions in the classical (nonintegrable) φ 4 field model in one-dimensional space. Earlier numerical studies ofExpand
Kink-antikink interactions in a modified sine-Gordon model
We study numerically the interactions of a kink (K) and an antikink (K) in a parametrically modified sine-Gordon model with potential V(φ) = (1 − r)2(1 − cosφ)/(1 + r2 + 2rcosφ). As the parameter rExpand
Kink-antikink collisions in the φ⁶ model.
Although the single-kink solutions for this model do not possess an internal vibrational mode, simulations reveal a resonant scattering structure, thereby providing a counterexample to the standard belief that the existence of such a mode is a necessary condition for multibounce resonances in general kink-antikink collisions.

Kink-Antikink Collisions in the φ4 Equation: The n-Bounce Resonance and the Separatrix Map
A detailed mathematical explanation of a phenomenon known as the two-bounce resonance observed in collisions between kink and antikink traveling waves of the $\phi^4$ equations of mathematical physics, including the origin of several mathematical assumptions needed by previous researchers are provided.

Dynamics of classical solitons (in non-integrable systems)
Abstract A survey of the properties of soliton type solutions to non-linear wave equations appearing in various fields of physics is given. For the most part the description deals with non-integrableExpand
Topological and Non-Topological Solitons in Scalar Field Theories
Solitons emerge in various nonlinear systems – from nonlinear optics and condensed matter to nuclear physics, cosmology, and supersymmetric theories – as stable, localized configurations behaving inExpand
False vacuum decay in kink scattering
A bstractIn this work we consider kink-antikink and antikink-kink collisions in a modified ϕ4 model with a false vacuum characterized by a dimensionless parameter ϵ. The usual ϕ4 model is recoveredExpand
Collision of two kinks with inner structure
In this work, we study kink collisions in a scalar field model with scalar-kinetic coupling. This model supports kink/antikink solutions with inner structure in the energy density. The collision ofExpand
Kink dynamics in a parametric ϕ6 system: a model with controllably many internal modes
A bstractWe explore a variant of the ϕ6 model originally proposed in Phys. Rev.D 12 (1975) 1606 as a prototypical, so-called, “bag” model in which domain walls play the role of quarks within hadrons.Expand
