Conditional Linearizability Criteria for Third Order Ordinary Differential Equations

Fazal M. Mahomed, Asghar Qadir
Pages: 124 - 133
Using geometric methods for linearizing systems of second order cubically non-linear in the first derivatives ordinary differential equations, we extend to the third order by differentiating the second order equation. This yields criteria for conditional linearizability via point transformation with...

Approximation of Solitons in the Discrete NLS Equation

Jesus Cuevas, Guillaume James, Panayotis G. Kevrekidis, Boris A. Malomed, Bernardo Sanchez-Rey
Pages: 124 - 136
We study four different approximations for finding the profile of discrete solitons in the one- dimensional Discrete Nonlinear Schrödinger (DNLS) Equation. Three of them are discrete approximations (namely, a variational approach, an approximation to homoclinic orbits and a Green-function approach),...

Robin Bullough
Pages: 124 - 137
It is shown how in the early days of soliton theory 1976-the early 1980's Francesco Calogero maintained a considerable influence on the field and on the work of the athor Robin Bullough in particular. A vehicle to this end was the essentially annual sequence of international conferences Francesco organised...

First Integrals Generated by Pseudosymmetries in Nambu-Poisson Mechanics

Mircea Crâşmăreanu
Pages: 126 - 135
Some types of first integrals for Hamiltonian Nambu-Poisson vector fields are obtained by using the notions of pseudosymmetries. In this theory, the homogeneous Hamiltnian vector fields play a special role and we point out this fact. The differential system which describe the SU(2)-monopoles is given...

Considering the coupled envelope equations in nonlinear couplers, the question of integrability is attempted. It is explicitly shown that Hirota's bilinear method is one of the simple and alternative techniques to Painlevé analysis to obtain the integrability conditions of the coupled nonlinear Schrödinger...

Hervé Leblond
Pages: 126 - 143
A new type of perturbative expansion is built in order to give a rigorous derivation and to clarify the range of validity of some commonly used model equations. This model describes the evolution of the modulation of two short and localized pulses, fundamental and second harmonic, propagating together...

Solitons in a double pendulums chain model, and DNA roto-torsional dynamics

Mariano Cadoni, Roberto De Leo, Giuseppe Gaeta
Pages: 128 - 146
It was first suggested by Englander et al to model the nonlinear dynamics of DNA relevant to the transcription process in terms of a chain of coupled pendulums. In a related paper [4] we argued for the advantages of an extension of this approach based on considering a chain of double pendulums with certain...

The Elliptic Sinh-Gordon Equation in the Quarter Plane

Guenbo Hwang
Pages: 127 - 140
We study the elliptic sinh-Gordon equation formulated in the quarter plane by using the so-called Fokas method, which is a significant extension of the inverse scattering transform for the boundary value problems. The method is based on the simultaneous spectral analysis for both parts of the Lax pair...
