Conclusion: Comparing Different Types of Optical Patterns

  • Nikolay N. Rosanov
Part of the Springer Series in Synergetics book series (SSSYN)


As a conclusion to the book’s main text, let us compare the different types of patterns in wide-aperture nonlinear optical systems described by the generalized Ginzburg—Landau equation [300, 68, 297]:

$$\frac{{\partial E}}{{\partial \zeta }} = \left( {a + ib} \right){\Delta _D}E + f\left( {{{\left| E \right|}^2}} \right)E + {E_{in}}.$$
