Soliton resonances in a generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equation
MetadataShow full item record
It is shown that a generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equation proposed by Malomed and Stenflo admits, for a specific range of parameters, resonant soliton interaction. The equation is transformed to the 'resonant' nonlinear Schrödinger equation, as originally introduced to describe black holes in a Madelung fluid and recently derived in the context of uniaxial wave propagation in a cold collisionless plasma. A Hirota bilinear representation is obtained and soliton solutions are thereby derived. The one-soliton solution interpretation in terms of a black hole in two-dimensional spacetime is given. For the two-soliton solution, resonant interactions of several kinds are found. The addition of a quantum potential term is considered and the reduction is obtained to the resonant NLS equation. © 2008 IOP Publishing Ltd.
