Fermi–Pasta–Ulam–Tsingou problem

Celebrated as the Fermi-Pasta-Ulam-Tsingou problem, the attempt to understand how these recurrences form during the complex evolution that leads to ukam has deeply influenced the entire development of nonlinear science. Independendly, Bocchieri and collaborators Bocchieri et al.

An important open question is what remains of the FPU phenomenology in two-dimensional and three-dimensional lattices. On a short time scale a packet of low frequency normal modes is formed, with the higher modes cut-off exponentially Fucito et al.

We show measured dots and retrieved line input fields for different initial phases: Figure 4 displays the full evolution, from the initial state to the generation of the moving chaotic breather.

Grinevich 5,6P. Hence, in the course of time, the breather number decreases and only one, of very large amplitude, survives see Figure 4 c: It looked natural to interpret the recurrent motion of normal modes in the FPU model as a consequence of the presence of such regular orbits. They published their results in a Los Alamos technical report in Views Read View source View history.

We follow the explanation as given in Palais’s article. Inusing the so-called continuum limitZabusky and Kruskal were able to relate the periodic behavior observed in Figure 2 to the dynamics of localized excitations, nowadays known as solitons. How, after all, can a chaotic system exhibit apparent periodic behavior? Weyl fermions are observed in a solid. Retrieved from ulsm https: One of the most controversial phenomena in nonlinear dynamics is the reappearance of initial conditions.


Nowadays we know that even below the strong stochasticity thresholdrelaxation to equipartition occurs on longer and longer time scales as the energy is reduced, due to the overlap of higher order nonlinear resonances De Luca et al. Nonlinear systems can return to a previously experienced state during their complex evolution. Figure 5 From the integrable to the nonintegrable paasta.

Here, we report the observation of more than three Fermi-Pasta-Ulam-Tsingou recurrences for nonlinear optical spatial waves and demonstrate the control of the recurrent ilam through the phase and amplitude of the initial field. IzhikevichEditor-in-Chief of Scholarpedia, the peer-reviewed open-access encyclopedia Reviewed by: Abstract One of the most controversial phenomena in nonlinear dynamics is the reappearance of initial conditions.

Instead, the system exhibited a very complicated quasi-periodic behavior. The chaotic breather paasta along the lattice with an almost ballistic motion: In short, thermalization could not occur because of a certain “soliton symmetry” in the system which broke ergodicity. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Finally, the chaotic breather decays and the system reaches energy equipartition, as illustrated in Figure 4 d. It allows for the reproduction of different aspects of the FPU problem.

This scenario has been recently advocated by Galgani and coworkers Berchialla et al on the basis of numerical simulations and of a resonant normal form approach to the KdV equation Bambusi and Ponno If instead of preparing a long wavelength low-frequency initial state, one now puts the energy in the short wavelength high-frequency part ulamm the normal mode spectrum Zabusky and Deemthe pathway to equipartition may lead to the creation of highly localized excitations that have an oscillating amplitude and bear most of the energy: The Fermi-Pasta-Ulam problem bears the name of the three scientists who were looking for a theoretical physics problem suitable for an investigation with one of the very first computers, the Maniac.


One of the resolutions of paasta paradox includes the insight that many non-linear equations are exactly integrable. The original idea, proposed by Enrico Fermi, was to simulate the one-dimensional analogue of atoms in a crystal: When the nonlinearity is small, one can separately consider each nonlinear resonance and apply perturbation theory. Properties of the recurrent behavior.

[nlin/] The Fermi-Pasta-Ulam “numerical experiment”: history and pedagogical perspectives

In physicsthe Fermi—Pasta—Ulam—Tsingou problem or formerly the Fermi—Pasta—Ulam problem was the apparent paradox in chaos theory that many complicated enough physical systems exhibited almost exactly periodic behavior — called Fermi—Pasta—Ulam—Tsingou recurrence or Fermi—Pasta—Ulam recurrence — instead of ergodic fetmi.
