Title: Integrable nonlocal derivative nonlinear Schrödinger equations
Abstract Integrable standard and nonlocal derivative nonlinear Schrödinger equations are investigated. The direct and inverse scattering are constructed for these equations; included are both the Riemann–Hilbert and Gel’fand–Levitan–Marchenko approaches and soliton solutions. As a typical application, it is shown how these derivative NLS equations can be obtained as asymptotic limits from a nonlinear Klein–Gordon equation.

  1. In this paper, we propose a local discontinuous Galerkin (LDG) method for nonlinear and possibly degenerate parabolic stochastic partial differential equations, which is a high-order numerical scheme. It extends the discontinuous Galerkin (DG) method for purely hyperbolic equations to parabolic equations and shares with the DG method its advantage and flexibility. We prove the L 2 -stability of the numerical scheme for fully nonlinear equations. Optimal error estimates ( O ( h (k+1) )) for smooth solutions of semi-linear stochastic equations is shown if polynomials of degree k are used. We use an explicit derivative-free order 1.5 time discretization scheme to solve the matrix-valued stochastic ordinary differential equations derived from the spatial discretization. Numerical examples are given to display the performance of the LDG method.
  2. Lump solutions are analytical rational function solutions localized in all directions in space. We analyze a class of lump solutions, generated from quadratic functions, to nonlinear partial differential equations. The basis of success is the Hirota bilinear formulation and the primary object is the class of positive multivariate quadratic functions. A complete determination of quadratic functions positive in space and time is given, and positive quadratic functions are characterized as sums of squares of linear functions. Necessary and sufficient conditions for positive quadratic functions to solve Hirota bilinear equations are presented, and such polynomial solutions yield lump solutions to nonlinear partial differential equations under the dependent variable logarithmic derivative transformations. Applications are made for a few generalized KP and BKP equations.
  3. Dielectric elastomers (DEs) deform and change shape when an electric field is applied across them. They are flexible, resilient, lightweight, and durable and as such are suitable for use as soft actuators. In this paper a physics-based and control-oriented model is developed for a DE tubular actuator using a physics-lumped parameter modeling approach. The model derives from the nonlinear partial differential equations (PDE) which govern the nonlinear elasticity of the DE actuator and the ordinary differential equation (ODE) that governs the electrical dynamics of the DE actuator. With the boundary conditions for the tubular actuator, the nonlinear PDEs are numerically solved and a quasi-static nonlinear model is obtained and validated by experiments. The full nonlinear model is then linearized around an operating point with an analytically derived Hessian matrix. The analytically linearized model is validated by experiments. Proportional–Integral–Derivative (PID) and H∞ control are developed and implemented to perform position reference tracking of the DEA and the controllers’ performances are evaluated according to control energy and tracking error.
  4. Abstract Harnessing data to discover the underlying governing laws or equations that describe the behavior of complex physical systems can significantly advance our modeling, simulation and understanding of such systems in various science and engineering disciplines. This work introduces a novel approach called physics-informed neural network with sparse regression to discover governing partial differential equations from scarce and noisy data for nonlinear spatiotemporal systems. In particular, this discovery approach seamlessly integrates the strengths of deep neural networks for rich representation learning, physics embedding, automatic differentiation and sparse regression to approximate the solution of system variables, compute essential derivatives, as well as identify the key derivative terms and parameters that form the structure and explicit expression of the equations. The efficacy and robustness of this method are demonstrated, both numerically and experimentally, on discovering a variety of partial differential equation systems with different levels of data scarcity and noise accounting for different initial/boundary conditions. The resulting computational framework shows the potential for closed-form model discovery in practical applications where large and accurate datasets are intractable to capture.
  5. Some linear integro-differential operators have old and classical representations as the Dirichlet-to-Neumann operators for linear elliptic equations, such as the 1/2-Laplacian or the generator of the boundary process of a reflected diffusion. In this work, we make some extensions of this theory to the case of a nonlinear Dirichlet-to-Neumann mapping that is constructed using a solution to a fully nonlinear elliptic equation in a given domain, mapping Dirichlet data to its normal derivative of the resulting solution. Here we begin the process of giving detailed information about the Lévy measures that will result from the integro-differential representation of the Dirichlet-to-Neumann mapping. We provide new results about both linear and nonlinear Dirichlet-to-Neumann mappings. Information about the Lévy measures is important if one hopes to use recent advancements of the integro-differential theory to study problems involving Dirichlet-to-Neumann mappings.
