Chong, J. G. Kevrekidis Abstract In the present chapter, we consider two prototypical Klein–Gordon models: the integrable sine-Gordon equation and the non-integrable 4 model. We focus, in particular, on two of their principal solutions, namely the kinklike heteroclinic connections and the time-periodic, exponentially localized in space breather waveforms. Two limits of the discrete variants of these models are contrasted: on the one side, the analytically tractable original continuum limit, and on the opposite end, the highly discrete, so-called anti-continuum limit of vanishing coupling.
Note that expression (53), although it may seem divergent, actually vanishes at jzj ! 1. In the case of the double sG equation (7), the perturbation term, sin . =2/, prevents the existence of 2 kinks, such as those given by Eq. (23), but it gives rise to stable bound states of two 2 kinks in the form of a 4 kink. It may be found in an exact form, in spite of the nonintegrability of the double sG equation. A. Malomed This bound state may exist in an excited state, with the two constituent 2 kinks featuring relative oscillations of their positions with p frequency which was predicted by means of the perturbation theory too, !
