Vortex solutions of the defocusing discrete nonlinear Schrödinger equation

Abstract : We consider the existence, stability and dynamical evolution of dark vortex states in the two‐dimensional defocusing DNLS equation, a model of interest both to atomic physics and to nonlinear optics. Our considerations are chiefly based on initializing such vortex configurations at the anti‐continuum limit of zero coupling between adjacent sites, and continuing them to finite values of the coupling. Discrete defocusing vortices become unstable past a critical coupling strength and, subsequently feature a cascade of alternating stabilization‐destabilization windows for any finite lattice.
