Topological Solitons Seminar: Nonlinear Waves in Nonlocal Media
12 November 2014 13:00 in CM221
Diverse physical settings are described by the nonlinear Schrödinger equation with nonlocal nonlinearity. For example, in the context of optics such nonlocal nonlinearities may arise in systems involving transport processes. In Bose-Einstein condensates the nonlocality of the nonlinearity reflects long-ranged interactions between atoms. During this talk, I will discuss collapse of the wave function and a curious dynamics of certain higher-order solitary waves for the cubic nonlocal nonlinear Schrödinger equation.
