The hidden role of coupled wave network topology on the dynamics of nonlinear lattices

  author={Sophia R. Sklan and Baowen Li},
  journal={arXiv: Classical Physics},
In most systems, its division into interacting constituent elements gives rise to a natural network structure. Analyzing the dynamics of these elements and the topology of these natural graphs gave rise to the fields of (nonlinear) dynamics and network science, respectively. However, just as an object in a potential well can be described as both a particle (real space representation) and a wave (reciprocal or Fourier space representation), the `natural' network structure of these interacting…

Network theory of microscopic and macroscopic behavior of master equation systems

A general microscopic and macroscopic theory is developed for systems which are governed by a (linear) master equation. The theory is based on a network representation of the master equation, and the

Dynamics of nonlinear resonances in Hamiltonian systems

It is well known that the dynamics of a Hamiltonian system depends crucially on whether or not it possesses nonlinear resonances. In the generic case, the set of nonlinear resonances consists of

Modulational instability and energy localization in anharmonic lattices at finite energy density

The localization of vibrational energy, induced by the modulational instability of the Brillouin-zone-boundary mode in a chain of classical anharmonic oscillators with finite initial energy density,

Tail resonances of Fermi-Pasta-Ulam q-breathers and their impact on the pathway to equipartition.

A previously developed perturbation method is extended, based essentially on a Poincare-Lindstedt scheme, in order to account for superharmonic resonances of q-breathers and natural packets and to treat more general model cases, including truncated Toda potentials.
