Boundary layers and emitted excitations in nonlinear Schrödinger superflow past a disk

Abstract

The stability and dynamics of nonlinear Schrödinger superflows past a two-dimensional disk are investigated using a specially adapted pseudo-spectral method based on mapped Chebychev polynomials. This efficient numerical method allows the imposition of both Dirichlet and Neumann boundary conditions at the disk border. Small coherence length boundary-layer approximations to stationary solutions are obtained analytically. Newton branch-following is used to compute the complete bifurcation diagram of stationary solutions. The dependence of the critical Mach number on the coherence length is characterized. Above the critical Mach number, at coherence length larger than fifteen times the diameter of the disk, rarefaction pulses are dynamically nucleated, replacing the vortices that are nucleated at small coherence length.
