    Abstract : This thesis treats finite element schemes for two kind of problems, the Valsov-Maxwellsystem and the nonlinear Schrödinger equation. We study streamline diffusion schemes applied for numerical solution of the one and one-half dimensional relativistic Vlasov-Maxwell system. The study is made both in a priori and a posteriori settings. READ MORE

  5. 5. Nonlinear Dynamics of Coherent and Partially Coherent Optical Waves

    Author : Tobias Hansson; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; soliton interaction; Wigner transform; logarithmically saturable media; Nonlinear Schrödinger equation; parabolic beams; partial coherence; quasilinear diffusion; modulational instability;

    Abstract : In optics an important nonlinear effect is manifested by the fact that the refractive index, in addition to its frequency dependence, also depends on the intensity of the light. Nonlinear effects are present within a wide range of optical applications e.g. the fast growing fields of fiber-optic communication and all-optical signal processing. READ MORE
