报告题目：Stability of traveling waves of Gross-Pitaevskii equation
The Gross-Pitaevskii equations are widely used in modeling superfluids and Bose-Einstein condensates. The GP equation has traveling waves solutions which have non-vanishing limit at infinity, first discovered by physicists (Jones, Roberts et al.) in 1980s. The existence of such traveling waves has been studied a lot in recent years by Betheul, Saut, Maris and many others. However, the stability and dynamical behaviors of these traveling waves are not well understood. With Zhengping Wang and Chongchun Zeng, we proved a sharp nonlinear stability criterion for 3D traveling waves as conjectured in the physical literature, under a non-degeneracy assumption. Moreover, the unstable (stable) manifolds are constructed near unstable traveling waves. These results are extended for general nonlinear terms including cubic-quintic type and higher dimensions. We also proved that any 2D traveling wave of (GP) is transversely unstable and located the sharp interval for unstable transverse wave numbers.
