Asymptotic stability for spectrally stable Lugiato-Lefever solitons in periodic waveguides

Academic Article


  • We consider the Lugiato-Lefever model of optical fibers in the periodic context. Spectrally stable periodic steady states were constructed recently in the studies of Delcey and Haragus [Philos. Trans. R. Soc., A 376, 20170188 (2018)]; [Rev. Roumaine Math. Pures Appl. (to be published)]; and Hakkaev et al. (e-print arXiv:1806.04821). The spectrum of the linearization around such solitons consists of simple eigenvalues 0, −2α < 0, while the rest of it is a subset of the vertical line {μ:Rμ=−α}. Assuming such a property abstractly, we show that the linearized operator generates a C0 semigroup and, more importantly, the semigroup obeys (optimal) exponential decay estimates. Our approach is based on the Gearhart-Prüss theorem, where the required resolvent estimates may be of independent interest. These results are applied to the proof of asymptotic stability with phase of the steady states.
