Expected and Unexpected Solutions to the Stationary One-Dimensional Nonlinear Schrodinger Equation
L D. Carr, Charles W. Clark, W P. Reinhardt
We present all stationary solutions to the nonlinear Schrodinger equation in one dimension for box and periodic boundary conditions. For both repulsive and attractive nonlinearity we find expected and unexpected solutions. Expected solutions are those that are in direct analogy with those of the linear Schrodinger equation under the same boundary conditions. Unexpected solutions are those that have no such analogy. We give a physical interpretation for the unexpected solutions. We discuss the properties of all solution types and briefly relate them to experiments on the dilute-gas Bose-Einstein condensate.
