Orbital stability of traveling waves for the one-dimensional Gross-Pitaevskii equation. (English) Zbl 1232.35152
From the text: We prove the nonlinear orbital stability of the stationary traveling wave of the one-dimensional Gross-Pitaevskii equation (which models the dynamics of Bose-Einstein condensates, superfluids) by using Zakharov-Shabat’s inverse scattering method. The unusual conditions at infinity imposed by the finiteness of the Ginzburg-Landau energy give rise to the existence of many traveling waves solutions. Our main result is the nonlinear orbital stability for the solution \(U_0\), where \(U_c(x) = \sqrt{1-c^2/2} \tanh(\sqrt{1-c^2/2} x/\sqrt{2})+ i c/\sqrt{2}\).
