We present a statistical equilibrium model of self-organization in a class of focusing, nonintegrable nonlinear Schrodinger (NLS) equations. The theory predicts that the asymptotic-time behavior of the NLS system is characterized by the formation and persistence of a large-scale coherent solitary wave, which minimizes the Hamiltonian given the conserved particle number (L2-norm squared), coupled with small-scale random fluctuations, or radiation. The fluctuations account for the difference… CONTINUE READING
