Stability of non-time-reversible phonobreathers

By Jesús Cuevas-Maraver, Juan F. R. Archilla and Francisco Romero Romero


Non-time reversible phonobreathers are non-linear waves that can transport energy in coupled oscillator chains by means of a phase-torsion mechanism. In this paper, the stability properties of these structures have been considered. It has been performed an analytical study for low-coupling solutions based upon the so called multibreather stability theorem previously developed by some of the authors [Physica D 180 235]. A numerical analysis confirms the analytical predictions and gives a detailed picture of the existence and stability properties for arbitrary frequency and coupling.MICINN project FIS2008-0484
