Self-similar solutions of equations of the nonlinear Schrödinger type
A study is made of self-similar solutions of an entire family of one-dimensional integrable dynamic systems of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation type. This family is reduced to one of three canonical forms corresponding to a Toda chain, a Volterra chain, or to the Landau-Lifshitz model, which can also be reduced to three self-similar systems coupled by Miura transformations with the fourth Painleve equation. A commutative representation is constructed for this equation. A relationship is established between the poles of the rational solutions of the fourth Painleve equation and the steady-state distribution of the electric charges in a parabolic potential. A self-similar solution is constructed for the spin dynamics. An exact solution is obtained for the nonlinear Schrödinger equation with variable dispersion (optical soliton).
