Rogue wave solutions to the generalized nonlinear Schrdinger equation with variable coefficients. Academic Article uri icon


  • A similarity transformation is utilized to reduce the generalized nonlinear Schrdinger (NLS) equation with variable coefficients to the standard NLS equation with constant coefficients, whose rogue wave solutions are then transformed back into the solutions of the original equation. In this way, Ma breathers, the first- and second-order rogue wave solutions of the generalized equation, are constructed. Properties of a few specific solutions and controllability of their characteristics are discussed. The results obtained may raise the possibility of performing relevant experiments and achieving potential applications.
