Abstract

In this paper, the generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equation (GNLS) is studied. The bifurcation of solitary waves of the equation is discussed first, by using the bifurcation theory of planar dynamical systems. Then, the respective numbers of solitary waves are derived under different conditions on the equation parameters. Exact solutions of smooth solitary waves are obtained in the explicit form of a(ξ)ei(ψ(ξ)-ωt) ξ = x -vt by qualitatively seeking the homoclinic and heteroclinic orbits for a class of Liénard equations. Finally, nonsmooth solitary wave solutions of the GNLS are investigated. © World Scientific Publishing Company.
