Title:
Time-reversal focusing of an expanding soliton gas in disordered replicas
Authors:
Fratalocchi, Andrea ( 0000-0001-6769-4439 ) ; Armaroli, A.; Trillo, S.
Abstract:
We investigate the properties of time reversibility of a soliton gas, originating from a dispersive regularization of a shock wave, as it propagates in a strongly disordered environment. An original approach combining information measures and spin glass theory shows that time-reversal focusing occurs for different replicas of the disorder in forward and backward propagation, provided the disorder varies on a length scale much shorter than the width of the soliton constituents. The analysis is performed by starting from a new class of reflectionless potentials, which describe the most general form of an expanding soliton gas of the defocusing nonlinear Schrödinger equation.
