D-bar method and its application to nonlinear evolution equations
Fudong Wang
2:00pm–3:00pm
CMC 108

Abstract

Starting with a spectral problem, we will discuss how to generate some famous nonlinear evolution equations, such as NLS, mKdV, and DNLS. An example of how to derive pure (multi-)soliton solutions for DNLS will be presented, based on Jyh-Hao Lee's work on the global solvability of the DNLS (1989).

Nonlocal PT-symmetric integrable equations and their Riemann-Hilbert problems
Wen-Xiu Ma
2:00pm–3:00pm
PED 110

Abstract

The talk aims to discuss how to construct nonlocal PT-symmetric integrable equations from nonlocal group reductions of matrix spectral problems. Such nonlocal equations can be classified into three types: reserve space, reverse time, and reverse spacetime, each of which can involve either the transpose or the Hermitian transpose. Notably there exist only five nonlocal PT-symmetric nonlinear Schrödinger and modified Korteweg-de Vires equations. Based on their associated spectral problems, a kind of Riemann-Hilbert problems is formulated and used to present the corresponding inverse scattering transforms. Soliton solutions are generated from solutions to special Riemann-Hilbert problems with the identity jump matrix.

Hirita bilinear forms for some nonlinear Schrödinger equations

PED 110

Abstract

In this talk, I will first review some basic concepts of the bilinear method. Then, with the bilinear mehtod, I will discuss how to obtain Hirota bilinear forms and soliton solutions for some nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equations, including the standard NLS equation, the derivative NLS equation and the Sasa–Satsuma equation. Note that we need to make use of some extra formulas and introduce an auxiliary function for some NLS equations. Our discussions might be helpful for obtaining Hirota bilinear forms for other nonlinear evolution equations.

Abstract

In this talk, I focus on \(N\)-soliton solutions to a coupled nonisospectral Gross-Pitaevskii system by the Riemann-Hilbert approach. From the spectral problem of its Lax pair, a kind of Riemann-Hilbert problems is derived for the system, and its \(N\)-soliton solutions are then presented in the irregularity and reflectionless case. Moreover, a multi-component coupled nonisospectral Gross-Pitaevskii system will also be presented.

Inverse scattering for nonlocal nonlinear Schrödinger hierarchies
Wen-Xiu Ma

PED 110

Abstract

The talk aims to discuss nonlocal nonlinear Schrödinger hierarchies and their inverse scattering transforms. The inverse scattering problems are formulated through Riemann-Hilbert problems and the closed systems for the Jost solutions are determined by the generalized Cauchy integral formula or the Sokhotski-Plemelj formula. The reflectionless transformations generate soliton solutions. A few illustrative examples will be presented.

Damping and inhomogeneous exchange effects in the propagation of short waves in ferrites

PED 110

Abstract

The Kraenkel–Manna–Merle (KMM) system is derived from the Maxwell's equations and Landau–Lifshitz–Gilbert equation to describe the propagation of short-waves in saturated ferromagnetic materials in an external field. By applying the consistent tanh expansion method and the truncated Painlevé analysis, new exact solutions including rogue waves to the KMM system are constructed, and numerical simulation is conducted to discuss the influence of damping and inhomogeneous exchange effects which exist in real circumstances.

Rogue wave solutions to the nonlocal nonlinear Schrödinger equation

PED 110

Abstract

By using a matrix version of Darboux transformation with a spectral matrix of the Jordan block form, rogue wave solutions to the nonlocal nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equation are presented. General rogue wave solutions up to the fourth-order are also formulated. The structure of these solutions is essentially determined by the corresponding solutions of the Lyapunov equation. With appropriate choices of free parameters, dynamics and distribution patterns for the nonlocal NLS equation are shown to be much abundant than those for the local NLS equation.

General \(N\)-solitons to nonlocal nonlinear Schrödinger equations by Riemann-Hilbert problems
Ahmed Ahmed
2:00pm–3:00pm
PED 110

Abstract

General \(N\)-solitons to three nonlocal nonlinear Schrödinger equations are derived from Riemann-Hilbert problems of the AKNS hierarchy. The three nonlocal equations correspond to reverse-space, reverse-time and reverse-space-time symmetries, respectively. Their \(N\)-solitons are associated with the same Riemann-Hilbert problems, but their symmetry relations of scattering data are different.

Inverse scattering and \(N\)-soliton solution for the nonlocal nonlinear Schrödinger equation

Abstract

We will discuss the inverse scattering for the nonlocal nonlinear Schrödinger equation from a special reduction of the AKNS/ZS system. Analyticity of the Jost eigenfunctions, as well as the scattering data, will be discussed in detail. The inverse scattering will finally be transferred to an oscillatory Riemann-Hilbert problem. Assuming that the initial data is reflectionless, a general \(N\)-soliton solution will be presented.
