Special Issue Information
Optical solitons are commonly known in all-optical ultrafast switching systems and the protracted communication after being conceived and validated practically. As a result, it has piqued the interest of a majority of nonlinear optics researchers. In diverse sectors, such as applied sciences, mathematical photonics, nonlinear wave propagation, and plasma physics, partial differential equations (PDEs) can be employed to quantify a plethora of dynamical systems. The quest for their numerical and analytical solutions provides the most insightful discussion about these equations and the nonlinear physical phenomena they are linked to.
In interacting systems, symmetry is frequently utilized to establish conservation principles and to create forbidden/allowed transitions. Symmetries are commonly employed in the field of nonlinear optics to identify whether a specific nonlinear process is permitted or prohibited based on the point group of the medium.
Our primary driving force behind this Special Issue is to look for various wave shapes for the PDEs' achieved solutions. To accomplish our objective, we use different analytical or numerical techniques to identify several analytical (or numerical) solutions, such as solitary, kink-soliton, anti-kink soliton, shock, dark-soliton, bright-soliton, and elliptic wave solutions. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to): nonlinear optics, wave transmission and propagation in homogeneous and inhomogeneous materials, and optical properties of materials.
