Modulation of uniform motion in diatomic Frenkel-Kontorova model

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We study modulated structures of uniform motion in the diatomic Frenkel-Kontorova (FK) model with alternating light and heavy particles. By applying topological method for the damped and driven case and variational approach for the conservative case, we demonstrate for the diatomic FK model the existence of two different periodic modulation functions corresponding respectively to light and heavy particles.
