Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The theoretical results concerning the existence, stability and unique features of spinning solitons were discussed in cubic-quintic nonlinear media. It was observed that the spinning solitons of relatively low-energy in the conservative model are always subject to an instability and leading to splitting of the soliton into several fragments. On the other hand, it was observed that spiral solitons may be fully stable and they may coexist at different values of spin.
