A discrete analog of the dressing method is presented and used to derive integrable nonlinear evolution equations, including two infinite families of novel continuous and discrete coupled integrable systems of equations of nonlinear Schrödinger type. First, a demonstration is given of how discrete nonlinear integrable equations can be derived starting from their linear counterparts. Then, starting from two uncoupled, discrete one‐directional linear wave equations, an appropriate matrix Riemann‐Hilbert problem is constructed, and a discrete matrix nonlinear Schrödinger system of equations is derived, together with its Lax pair. The corresponding compatible vector reductions admitted by these systems are also discussed, as well as their continuum limits. Finally, by increasing the size of the problem, three‐component discrete and continuous integrable discrete systems are derived, as well as their generalizations to systems with an arbitrary number of components.
In the present paper, we are with integrable discretization of a modified Camassa–Holm (mCH) equation with linear dispersion term. The key of the construction is the semidiscrete analog for a set of bilinear equations of the mCH equation. First, we show that these bilinear equations and their determinant solutions either in Gram‐type or Casorati‐type can be reduced from the discrete Kadomtsev–Petviashvili (KP) equation through Miwa transformation. Then, by scrutinizing the reduction process, we obtain a set of semidiscrete bilinear equations and their general soliton solution in Gram‐type or Casorati‐type determinant form. Finally, by defining dependent variables and discrete hodograph transformations, we are able to derive an integrable semidiscrete analog of the mCH equation. It is also shown that the semidiscrete mCH equation converges to the continuous one in the continuum limit.

Abstract 
General breather solution to the Sasa–Satsuma equation (SSE) is systematically investigated in this paper. We firstly transform the SSE into a set of three Hirota bilinear equations under a proper plane wave boundary condition. Starting from a specially arranged taufunction of the Kadomtsev–Petviashvili hierarchy and a set of 11 bilinear equations satisfied, we implement a series steps of reduction procedure, i.e. Ctype reduction, dimension reduction and complex conjugate reduction, and reduce these 11 equations to three bilinear equations for the SSE. Meanwhile, the general breather solution to the SSE is found in determinant of even order. The one and twobreather solutions are calculated and analysed in detail.more » « less

A nonlocal nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equation was recently found by the authors and shown to be an integrable infinite dimensional Hamiltonian equation. Unlike the classical (local) case, here the nonlinearly induced “potential” is
symmetric thus the nonlocal NLS equation is also symmetric. In this paper, new reverse space‐time andreverse time nonlocal nonlinear integrable equations are introduced. They arise from remarkably simple symmetry reductions of general AKNS scattering problems where the nonlocality appears in both space and time or time alone. They are integrable infinite dimensional Hamiltonian dynamical systems. These include the reverse space‐time, and in some cases reverse time, nonlocal NLS, modified Korteweg‐deVries (mKdV), sine‐Gordon, (1 + 1) and (2 + 1) dimensional three‐wave interaction, derivative NLS, “loop soliton,” Davey–Stewartson (DS), partiallysymmetric DS and partially reverse space‐time DS equations. Linear Lax pairs, an infinite number of conservation laws, inverse scattering transforms are discussed and one soliton solutions are found. Integrable reverse space‐time and reverse time nonlocal discrete nonlinear Schrödinger type equations are also introduced along with few conserved quantities. Finally, nonlocal Painlevé type equations are derived from the reverse space‐time and reverse time nonlocal NLS equations. 
A (2+1)dimensional fifthorder KdVlike equation is introduced through a generalized bilinear equation with the prime number . The new equation possesses the same bilinear form as the standard (2+1)dimensional fifthorder KdV equation. By Maple symbolic computation, classes of lump solutions are constructed from a search for quadratic function solutions to the corresponding generalized bilinear equation. We get a set of free parameters in the resulting lump solutions, of which we can get a nonzero determinant condition ensuring analyticity and rational localization of the solutions. Particular classes of lump solutions with special choices of the free parameters are generated and plotted as illustrative examples.more » « less

null (Ed.)Abstract When solving, modeling or reasoning about complex problems, it is usually convenient to use the knowledge of a parallel physical system for representing it. This is the case of lumpedcircuit abstraction, which can be used for representing mechanical and acoustic systems, thermal and heatdiffusion problems and in general partial differential equations. Integrated photonic platforms hold the prospective to perform signal processing and analog computing inherently, by mapping into hardware specific operations which relies on the wavenature of their signals, without trusting on logic gates and digital states like electronics. Here, we argue that in absence of a straightforward parallelism a homomorphism can be induced. We introduce a photonic platform capable of mimicking Kirchhoff’s law in photonics and used as node of a finite difference mesh for solving partial differential equation using monochromatic light in the telecommunication wavelength. Our approach experimentally demonstrates an arbitrary set of boundary conditions, generating a oneshot discrete solution of a Laplace partial differential equation, with an accuracy above 95% with respect to commercial solvers. Our photonic engine can provide a route to achieve chipscale, fast (10 s of ps), and integrable reprogrammable accelerators for the next generation hybrid highperformance computing. Summary A photonic integrated platform which can mimic Kirchhoff’s law in photonics is used for approximately solve partial differential equations noniteratively using light, with high throughput and lowenergy levels.more » « less
