Multi-component structure of nonlinear excitations in systems with length-scale competition

We investigate the properties of nonlinear excitations in different types of soliton carrying systems with long-range dispersive interactions. We show that length-scale competition in such systems, universally results in a multi-component structure of nonlinear excitations which may lead to a new type of multistability: coexistence of different nonlinear excitations at the same value of the spectral parameter (i.e., velocity in the case of anharmonic lattices or frequency in nonlinear Schrödinger models).
