Dissipative lattice model with exact traveling discrete kink-soliton solutions: discrete breather generation and reaction diffusion regime



Dissipative lattice model with exact traveling discrete kink-soliton solutions: discrete breather generation and reaction diffusion regime



Physical Review. E, Statistical Physics, Plasmas, Fluids, and Related Interdisciplinary Topics 60(6 Pt B): 7484-7489



We introduce a nonlinear Klein-Gordon lattice model with specific double-well on-site potential, additional constant external force and dissipation terms, which admits exact discrete kink or traveling wave fronts solutions. In the non-dissipative or conservative regime, our numerical simulations show that narrow kinks can propagate freely, and reveal that static or moving discrete breathers, with a finite but long lifetime, can emerge from kink-antikink collisions. In the general dissipative regime, the lifetime of these breathers depends on the importance of the dissipative effects. In the overdamped or diffusive regime, the general equation of motion reduces to a discrete reaction diffusion equation; our simulations show that, for a given potential shape, discrete wave fronts can travel without experiencing any propagation failure but their collisions are inelastic.
