Trapping wave fields in an expulsive potential by means of linear coupling.

We demonstrate the existence of confined states in one- and two-dimensional (1D and 2D) systems of two linearly coupled components, with the confining harmonic-oscillator (HO) potential acting upon

Nonlinear Dynamics of Wave Packets in Tunnel-Coupled Harmonic-Oscillator Traps

We consider a two-component linearly coupled system with the intrinsic cubic nonlinearity and the harmonic-oscillator (HO) confining potential. The system models binary settings in BEC and optics. In



Spontaneous symmetry breaking of fundamental states, vortices, and dipoles in two- and one-dimensional linearly coupled traps with cubic self-attraction

We introduce two- and one-dimensional (2D and 1D) systems of two linearly-coupled Gross-Pitaevskii equations (GPEs) with the cubic self-attraction and harmonic-oscillator (HO) trapping potential in

Spontaneous soliton symmetry breaking in two-dimensional coupled Bose-Einstein condensates supported by optical lattices

Models of two-dimensional (2D) traps, with double-well structure in the third direction, for Bose-Einstein condensates are introduced with attractive or repulsive interactions between atoms. The

Symmetry breaking of solitons in two-component Gross-Pitaevskii equations.

We revisit the problem of the spontaneous symmetry breaking (SSB) of solitons in two-component linearly coupled nonlinear systems, adding the nonlinear interaction between the components. With this

Spontaneous symmetry breaking in a nonlinear double-well structure

We propose a model of a nonlinear double-well potential (NDWP), alias a double-well pseudopotential, with the objective to study an alternative implementation of the spontaneous symmetry breaking

Spontaneous symmetry breaking in linearly coupled disk-shaped Bose-Einstein condensates

We study effects of tunnel coupling on a pair of parallel disc-shaped Bose–Einstein condensates with the self-attractive intrinsic nonlinearity. Each condensate is trapped in a combination of

Symmetric and asymmetric solitons in linearly coupled Bose-Einstein condensates trapped in optical lattices

We study spontaneous symmetry breaking in a system of two parallel quasi-one-dimensional traps (cores), equipped with optical lattices (OLs) and filled with a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC). The

Spontaneous symmetry breaking of gap solitons and phase transitions in double-well traps

We introduce a two dimensional model for the Bose-Einstein condensate with both attractive and repulsive nonlinearities. We assume a combination of a double well potential in one direction, and an

Transition to miscibility in a binary Bose–Einstein condensate induced by linear coupling

A one-dimensional mean-field model of a two-component condensate in the parabolic trap is considered, with the components corresponding to different spin states of the same atom. We demonstrate that

Symmetry breaking in laser cavities: Nonlinear optics

A brief introduction to the topic of spontaneous symmetry breaking (SSB) in conservative and dissipative nonlinear systems with an underlying double-well-potential structure is given. The reason is a

Spontaneous symmetry breaking, self-trapping, and Josephson oscillations

This volume collects a a number of contributions on spontaneous symmetry breaking. Current studies in this general field are going ahead at a full speed. The book present review chapters which give
