On the quintic time-dependent coefficient derivative nonlinear Schrödinger equation in hydrodynamics or fiber optics
Under investigation in this paper is a quintic time-dependent coefficient derivative nonlinear Schrödinger equation for certain hydrodynamic wave packets or a medium with the negative refractive index. A gauge transformation is found to obtain the equivalent form of the equation. With respect to the wave envelope for the free water surface displacement or envelope of the electric field, Painlevé integrable condition, different from that in the existing literature, is derived, with which the bilinear forms and N-soliton solutions are constructed. Asymptotic analysis illustrates that the interactions between the bright and bound solitons as well as between the bright solitons and Kuznetsov–Ma breathers are elastic with certain conditions, while some other interactions are inelastic under other conditions. Propagation paths and velocities for the solitons are both affected by the dispersion coefficient function when the relations among the coefficients are linear, or affected by the dispersion coefficient, self-steepening coefficient and cubic nonlinearity functions when the relations among the coefficients are nonlinear. Under different conditions, bell-shaped solitons can evolve into the bound solitons or Kuznetsov–Ma breathers, respectively. Interactions between the bright and parabolic (or hyperbolic) solitons are related to the dispersion coefficient, self-steepening coefficient and cubic nonlinearity functions. Compression effect on the propagation paths of the solitons, caused by the dispersion coefficient, is observed.
