New results for spontaneous symmetry breaking in nonlinear optics and matter waves

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

The presentation will give an overview of recent theoretical results which reveal new features of the spontaneous symmetry breaking (SSB) effect. It is produced by the interplay of the symmetry of an underlying potential, which traps optical or matter waves, and self-focusing nonlinearity.
