    Using the mass balance equations for chemical reactions, we show how the system relaxes toward a steady-state in and out of the Onsager region. In the chemical affinities space, after fast transients, the relaxation process is a straight line when operating in the Onsager region, while out of...

    A spectral problem and the associated Gerdjikov-Ivanov (GI) hierarchy of nonlinear evolution equations is presented. As a reduction, the well-known GI equation of derivative nonlinear Schro¨dinger equations is obtained. It is shown that the GI hierarchy is integrable in a Liouville sense and...

    Fractional calculus can always exactly describe anomalous diffusion. Recently the discrete fractional difference is becoming popular due to the depiction of non-linear evolution on discrete time domains. This paper proposes a diffusion model with two terms of discrete fractional order. The...

    The nonlinear evolution of the parametric instability of a finite amplitude Alfvén wave is studied in a one-dimensional geometry. The linear stage of this instability had been examined in a previous paper [Malara and Velli, Phys. Plasmas 3, 4427 (1996)], in which it has been shown that even a...

    Exact multisoliton solutions are obtained for the bidirectional Kaup-Kupershmidt equation that was reported in a recent paper [J. Math. Phys. 42, 2567 (2001)]—this fills the gap that was left in the prior study. These solutions are found to possess the same remarkable, and unusual,...

    A new formalism for solving general nonlinear equations is proposed. Given a nonlinear operator equation, a dual operator is constructed, canonically, similar to the adjoint operator in linear theory. By using this dual operator, advanced and retarded propagators (analogs of the Green’s...
