Solution of a Nonlinear Schrödinger Equation
Requires a Wolfram Notebook System
Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.
The nonlinear Schrödinger equation can be applied to describe nonlinear systems such as fiber optics, water waves, quantum condensates, nonlinear acoustics, and many others. This Demonstration solves the specific case of a soliton profile perturbed by a periodic potential.

The nonlinear Schrödinger equation has the general form
In this Demonstration we consider an inhomogeneous modified form
where is the solution range.
