Localized Nonlinear Excitations and Inter-chain Energy Exchange
The description of the nonlinear media in the framework of the quasi-one-dimensional models assumes the existence of the essential anisotropy of the media properties, for example, the considerable difference between coupling constants along and transversely the chains in the polymeric crystals.
