We show that the nonlinear coupling between two waveguide modes can lead to both power exchange and nonlinear phase shifting between the modes. New applications of nonlinear phase shifting to all-optical devices are described.

    The beta function on a lattice is studied in SU(2) gluodynamics. The definition of the beta function within the scaling hypothesis at a finite lattice size is used. The functions obtained in this way are compared with the results known in the continuum limit. Graphics processing units are used...

    We study the transition to phase synchronization in two diffusively coupled, nonidentical Chua oscillators. In the experiments, depending on the used parameterization, we observe several distinct routes to phase synchronization, including states of either in-phase, out-of-phase, or antiphase...

    We use numerical simulations based on the surface integral technique to study the detection limit of plasmonic trapping with realistic dipole antennas.
