During the last thirty years major development has been made within the research of nonlinear waves--including "soliton equations", a category of nonlinear wave equations that come up usually in such components as nonlinear optics, fluid dynamics, and statistical physics. The vast curiosity during this box could be traced to realizing "solitons" and the linked improvement of a mode of answer termed the inverse scattering remodel (IST). The IST strategy applies to non-stop and discrete nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equations of scalar and vector sort. This paintings provides an in depth mathematical examine of the scattering thought, bargains soliton suggestions, and analyzes either scalar and vector soliton interactions. The authors offer complex scholars and researchers with an intensive and self-contained presentation of the IST as utilized to nonlinear Schrödinger platforms.

37) This symmetry in the potential induces a symmetry between the Jost functions analytic in the upper k-plane and the Jost functions analytic in the lower k-plane. 2 The inverse scattering transform for NLS 29 In turn, this symmetry of the Jost functions induces a symmetry in the scattering data. 3). 38a) ∗ . 39b) and consequently ρ(k) ¯ = ∓ρ ∗ (k) Im k = 0. 39a) it follows that k j is a zero of a(k) in the upper k-plane iff k ∗j is ¯ a zero for a(k) in the lower k-plane. 36), J = J¯ and k¯ j = k ∗j , c¯ j = ∓c∗j j = 1, .

1 that if q, r ∈ L 1 (R), the Neumann series of the integral equations for M and N converge absolutely and uniformly (in x and k) in the upper k-plane, while the Neumann series of the integral equations for M¯ and N¯ converge absolutely and uniformly (in x and k) in the lower k-plane. These facts immediately imply that the Jost functions M(x, k) and N (x, k) are analytic func¯ tions of k for Im k > 0 and continuous for Im k ≥ 0, while M(x, k), and N¯ (x, k) are analytic functions of k for Im k < 0 and continuous for Im k ≤ 0.
