Q-Shock soliton evolution
MetadataShow full item record
By generating function based on Jackson's q-exponential function and the standard exponential function, we introduce a new q-analogue of Hermite and Kampe-de Feriet polynomials. In contrast to q-Hermite polynomials with triple recurrence relations similar to , our polynomials satisfy multiple term recurrence relations, which are derived by the q-logarithmic function. It allows us to introduce the q-Heat equation with standard time evolution and the q-deformed space derivative. We find solution of this equation in terms of q-Kampe-de Feriet polynomials with arbitrary number of moving zeros, and solved the initial value problem in operator form. By q-analog of the Cole-Hopf transformation we obtain a new q-deformed Burgers type nonlinear equation with cubic nonlinearity. Regular everywhere, single and multiple q-shock soliton solutions and their time evolution are studied. A novel, self-similarity property of the q-shock solitons is found. Their evolution shows regular character free of any singularities. The results are extended to the linear time dependent q-Schrödinger equation and its nonlinear q-Madelung fluid type representation. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
