    Nonlinear Beam Propagation in a Class of Complex Non-PT -Symmetric Potentials  [Chapter of Book]

    Cuevas-Maraver, Jesús; Kevrekidis, Panayotis G.; Frantzeskakis, Dimitri J.; Kominis, Yannis (Springer Nature Singapure, 2018)
    The subject of PT -symmetry and its areas of application have been blossoming over the past decade. Here, we consider a nonlinear Schrödinger model with a complex potential that can be tuned controllably away from being ...

    Solitary waves in the Nonlinear Dirac Equation  [Chapter of Book]

    Cuevas-Maraver, Jesús; Boussaïd, Nabile; Comech, Andrew; Lan, Ruomeng; Kevrekidis, Panayotis G.; Saxena, Avadh (Springer Nature Switzerland AG, 2018)
    In the present work, we consider the existence, stability, and dynamics of solitary waves in the nonlinear Dirac equation. We start by introducing the Soler model of self-interacting spinors, and discuss its localized ...

    Sine-Gordon Equation: From Discrete to Continuum  [Chapter of Book]

    Chirilus-Bruckner, Martina; Chong, Christopher; Kevrekidis, Panayotis G.; Cuevas-Maraver, Jesús (Springer International Publishing, 2014)
    In the present Chapter, we consider two prototypical Klein-Gordon models: the integrable sine- Gordon equation and the non-integrable φ4 model. We focus, in particular, on two of their prototypical solutions, namely the ...

    Symmetry-breaking Effects for Polariton Condensates in Double-Well Potentials  [Chapter of Book]

    Rodrigues, Augusto S.; Kevrekidis, Panayotis G.; Cuevas-Maraver, Jesús; Carretero-González, Ricardo; Frantzeskakis, Dimitri J. (Springer Verlag, 2012)
    We study the existence, stability, and dynamics of symmetric and anti-symmetric states of quasi-one-dimensional polariton condensates in double-well potentials, in the presence of nonresonant pumping and nonlinear damping. ...

    Hydrodynamic Transport Coefficients of Granular Gases  [Chapter of Book]

    Brey Abalo, Javier; Cubero, David (Springer-Verlag, 2001)
    Some transport properties of granular gases are investigated. Starting from a kinetic theory level of description, the hydrodynamic transport equations to Navier-Stokes order are presented. The equations are derived by ...

    Moving breather collisions in the Peyrard-Bishop DNA model  [Chapter of Book]

    Álvarez Chillida, María Azucena; Romero Romero, Francisco; Cuevas-Maraver, Jesús; Archilla, Juan F. R. (Springer, 2009)
    We consider collisions of moving breathers (MBs) in the Peyrard-Bishop DNA model. Two identical stationary breathers, sep- arated by a fixed number of pair-bases, are perturbed and begin to move approaching to each other ...

    Polaronic charge transport mechanism in DNA  [Chapter of Book]

    Hennig, Dirk; Archilla, Juan F. R. (Elsevier, 2006)
    For the detailed understanding of the conduction mechanism in DNA we use models based on the concept of polaron and breather solutions. We describe how charge transport relies on the coupling of the charge carrying unit ...

    A Supersonic Crowdion in Mica Ultradiscrete Kinks with Energy between 40K Recoil and Transmission Sputtering  [Chapter of Book]

    Archilla, Juan F. R.; Kosevich, Yuriy A.; Jiménez, Noé; Sánchez Morcillo, Víctor J.; García Raffi, Luis M. (Springer, 2015)
    In this work we analyze in detail the behaviour and properties of the kinks found in an one dimensional model for the close packed rows of potassium ions in mica muscovite. The model includes realistic potentials obtained ...

    Experimental observation of moving intrinsic localized modes in germanium  [Chapter of Book]

    Archilla, Juan F. R.; Coelho, Sergio M.M.; Danie Auret, F.; Nyamhere, Cloud; Dubinko, Vladimir; Hizhnyakov, Vladimir (Springer, 2015)
    Deep level transient spectroscopy shows that defects created by alpha irradiation of germanium are annealed by low energy plasma ions up to a depth of several thousand lattice units. The plasma ions have energies of 2-8 ...

    The origin of defects induced in ultra-pure germanium by Electron Beam Deposition  [Chapter of Book]

    Coelho, Sergio M.M.; Archilla, Juan F. R.; Danie Auret, F.; Nel, Jackie M. (Springer, 2015)
    The creation of point defects in the crystal lattices of various semiconductors by subthreshold events has been reported on by a number of groups. These observations have been made in great detail using sensitive electrical ...

    Classical and quantum nonlinear localized excitations in discrete systems  [Chapter of Book]

    Romero Romero, Francisco; Archilla, Juan F. R.; Palmero Acebedo, Faustino; Sánchez-Rey, Bernardo; Álvarez Chillida, María Azucena; Cuevas-Maraver, Jesús; Romero Romero, José María (Transworld Research Network, 2005)
    Discrete breathers, or intrinsic localized modes, are spatially localized, time–periodic, nonlinear excitations that can exist and propagate in systems of coupled dynamical units. Recently, some experiments show the ...
