Nonlinear Schrödinger equation on the half-line without a conserved number of solitons

Abstract

We explore the phenomena of absorption/emission of solitons by an integrable boundary for the focusing nonlinear Schrödinger equation on the half-line. This is based on the investigation of time-dependent reflection matrices which satisfy the boundary zero curvature equation. In particular, this leads to absorption/emission processes at the boundary that can take place for solitons and higher-order solitons. As a consequence, the usual charges on the half-line are no longer conserved but we show explicitly how to restore an infinite set of conserved quantities by taking the boundary into account. The Hamiltonian description and Poisson structure of the model are presented, which allows us to derive for the first time a classical version of the boundary algebra used originally in the context of the quantum nonlinear Schrödinger equation. •Absorption and/or emission of several solitons by a boundary.•The number of solitons may not be conserved.•Derivation of a classical version of the boundary algebra.
