  • Convectively induced shear instability in large amplitude internal solitary waves 

    Carr, Magda; Fructus, D; Grue, J; Jensen, A; Davies, P A (2008-12) - Journal article
    Laboratory study has been carried out to investigate the instability of an internal solitary wave of depression in a shallow stratified fluid system. The experimental campaign has been supported by theoretical computations ...
  • Dirac solitons in general relativity and conformal gravity 

    Dorkenoo Leggat, Alasdair (University of St Andrews, 2017-06-27) - Thesis
    Static, spherically-symmetric particle-like solutions to the coupled Einstein-Dirac and Einstein-Dirac-Maxwell equations have been studied by Finster, Smoller and Yau (FSY). In their work, FSY left the fermion mass as a ...
  • Instability in internal solitary waves with trapped cores 

    Carr, Magda; King, Stuart Edward; Dritschel, David Gerard (2012-01) - Journal article
    A numerical method that employs a combination of contour advection and pseudo-spectral techniques is used to investigate instability in internal solitary waves with trapped cores. A three-layer configuration for the ...
  • Negative frequency waves in optics : control and investigation of their generation and evolution 

    McLenaghan, Joanna Siân (University of St Andrews, 2014-06-25) - Thesis
    This thesis is concerned with various methods for the control and investigation of pulse dynamics in a Photonic Crystal Fibre (PCF) and of the radiation driven by a short pulse. In particular the focus is on pulses in ...
  • Soliton-induced relativistic-scattering and amplification 

    Rubino, E.; Lotti, A.; Belgiorno, F.; Cacciatori, S. L.; Couairon, A.; Leonhardt, U.; Faccio, D. (2012-12-06) - Journal article
    Solitons are of fundamental importance in photonics due to applications in optical data transmission and also as a tool for investigating novel phenomena ranging from light generation at new frequencies and wave-trapping ...
