Anderson Localization for the Nonlinear Schrödinger Equation (NLSE): Results and Puzzles Yevgeny Krivolapov, Avy Soffer, and SF

2
The Nonlinear Schroedinger (NLS) Equation random Anderson Model 1D lattice version 1D continuum version

3
Does Localization Survive the Nonlinearity??? localization

4
Does Localization Survive the Nonlinearity??? Yes, if there is spreading the magnitude of the nonlinear term decreases and localization takes over. No, assume wave-packet width is then the relevant energy spacing is, the perturbation because of the nonlinear term is and all depends on No, but does not depend on No, but it depends on realizations Yes, because time dependent localized perturbation does not destroy localization

5
Does Localization Survive the Nonlinearity??? Yes, wings remain bounded No, the NLSE is a chaotic dynamical system.

Experimental Relevance Nonlinear Optics Bose Einstein Condensates (BECs)

Numerical Simulations In regimes relevant for experiments looks that localization takes place Spreading for long time (Shepelansky, Pikovsky, Molina, Kopidakis, Komineas Flach, Aubry) ????

15
Perturbation Theory The nonlinear Schroedinger Equation on a Lattice in 1D random Anderson Model Eigenstates

16
The states are indexed by their centers of localization Is a state localized near This is possible since nearly each state has a Localization center and in box size M approximately M states

17
Overlap of the range of the localization length perturbation expansion Iterative calculation of start at

18
step 1 Secular term to be removed by here

19
Secular terms can be removed in all orders by The problem of small denominators The Aizenman-Molchanov approach New ansatz

20
Leading order result Starting from a state localized at some site the wave function is exponentially small at distances larger than the localization length for time of the order

21
Strategy for calculation of leading order Equation for remainder term AverageSmall denominators Probabilistic bound Bootstrap

22
Equation for remainder term We need to show or just We will limit ourselves to the expansion remainder Expansion

23
Where the equation for is

24
Where the linear part is removed secular term

25
To simplify the calculations we will denote such that

26
which leads to Small denominators

27
Where S i are small divisor sums, defined bellow.

28
Small denominators

29
We split the integration to boxes with constant sign of the Jacobian Using the following inequality

30
The integral can be bounded The integral could be further bounded where We show this in what follows

31
Use Feynman-Hellman theorem and take j significantly far. Sub-exponential

32
Minami estimate We exclude intervals Exclude realizations of a small measure the difference betweenis not small

33
The effect of renormalization Using (leading order in ) One finds where are the minimal and maximal Lyapunov exponents Therefore is not effected for

34
A bound on the overlap integral is Bound on the growth of the linear term

35
Using

36

37

38
Therefore Chebychev inequality

39
same for Therefore similar for

40
Where the equation for is Nonlinear terms linear

41
The Bootstrap Argument

42
some algebra gives or by renaming the constants

43
Summary Starting from a state localized at some site the wave function is exponentially small at distances larger than the localization length for time of the order

44
Higher orders iterate number of products of inplaces subtract forbidden combinations

45
Number of terms grows only exponentially, not factorially!! No entropy problem typical term in the expansion The only problem it contains the information on the position dependence complicated because of small denominators Can be treated producing a probabilistic bound

46
at orderexponential localization for

47
What is the effect of the remainder??

48
Questions and Puzzles What is the long time asymptotic behavior?? How can one understand the numerical results?? What is the time scale for the crossover to the long time asymptotics?? Are there parameters where this scale is short?
