Complex Behavior in Coupled Nonlinear Waveguides
Tuesday, November 1, 2016 - 2:00pm - 2:50pm
We consider the nonlinear propagation of light along an array of two or three coupled waveguides. The three waveguide system is known to support nine different stationary time-harmonic solutions. We consider the relative periodic orbits that occur due to some bifurcations in this system, including Hamiltonian Hopf bifurcations and saddle-node ($0^2 i \omega$) bifurcations.
