Multi-shocks generation and collapsing instabilities induced by competing nonlinearities

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We investigate dispersive shock dynamics in materials with competing cubic-quintic nonlinearities. Whitham theory of modulation, hydrodynamic analysis and numerics demonstrate a rich physical scenario, ranging from multi-shock generation to collapse.
