Nonlinear dynamics of wave packets in PT-symmetric optical lattices near the phase transition point

Sean Nixon, Yi Zhu, Jianke Yang

Nonlinear dynamics of wave packets in PT-symmetric optical lattices near the phase-transition point are analytically studied. A nonlinear Klein-Gordon equation is derived for the envelope of these wave packets. A variety of novel phenomena known to exist in this envelope equation are shown to also exist in the full equation including wave blowup, periodic bound states and solitary wave solutions.
