Synchronous collisions between a large number of solitons are considered in the context of a statistical description. It is shown that, during the interaction of solitons of the same signs, the wave field is effectively smoothed out. When the number of solitons increases and the sequence of their amplitudes decay slower, the focused wave becomes even smoother and the statistical moments get frozen for a long time. This quasi-stationary state is characterized by greatly reduced statistical…

Properties of synchronous collisions of solitons in the Korteweg – de Vries equation

Solitonic model of the condensate.

A spatially extended box-shaped wave field that consists of a plane wave in the middle and equals zero at the edges is considered, in the framework of the focusing one-dimensional nonlinear Schrodinger equation, to find analytically the specific corrections to the soliton norming constants that arise due to the removal procedure.

Korteweg‐de Vries Equation and Generalizations. II. Existence of Conservation Laws and Constants of Motion

With extensive use of the nonlinear transformations presented in Paper I of the series, a variety of conservation laws and constants of motion are derived for the Korteweg‐de Vries and related

Darboux Transformations and Solitons

In 1882 Darboux proposed a systematic algebraic approach to the solution of the linear Sturm-Liouville problem. In this book, the authors develop Darboux's idea to solve linear and nonlinear partial

On the optimal focusing of solitons and breathers in long‐wave models

Conditions of optimal (synchronized) collisions of any number of solitons and breathers are studied within the framework of the Gardner equation (GE) with positive cubic nonlinearity, which in the

Integrable Turbulence and Rogue Waves: Breathers or Solitons?

Recent numerical and experimental data suggest that the probability of the appearance of rogue waves in a chaotic wave state in such systems increases when the initial state is a random function of sufficiently high amplitude.

Critical density of a soliton gas.

We quantify the notion of a dense soliton gas by establishing an upper bound for the integrated density of states of the quantum-mechanical Schrödinger operator associated with the Korteweg-de Vries
