The Laplace-Adomian Decomposition Method Applied to the Kundu-Eckhaus Equation

The Kundu-Eckhaus equation is a nonlinear partial differential equation which seems in the quantum field theory, weakly nonlinear dispersive water waves and nonlinear optics. In spite of its importance, exact solution to this nonlinear equation are rarely found in literature. In this work, we solve this equation and present a new approach to obtain the solution by means of the combined use of the Adomian Decomposition Method and the Laplace Transform (LADM). Besides, we compare the behaviour of the solutions obtained with the only exact solutions given in the literature through fractional calculus. Moreover, it is shown that the proposed method is direct, effective and can be used for many other nonlinear evolution equations in mathematical physics.

1 Introduction

Most of the phenomena that arise in the real world can be described by means of nonlinear partial and ordinary differential equations and, in some cases, by integral or integro-differential equations. However, most of the mathematical methods developed so far, are only capable to solve linear differential equations. In the 1980’s, George Adomian (1923-1996) introduced a powerful method to solve nonlinear differential equations. Since then, this method is known as the Adomian decomposition method (ADM)

ADM-0 ; ADM-1 . The technique is based on a decomposition of a solution of a nonlinear differential equation in a series of functions. Each term of the series is obtained from a polynomial generated by a power series expansion of an analytic function. The Adomian method is very simple in an abstract formulation but the difficulty arises in calculating the polynomials that becomes a non-trivial task. This method has widely been used to solve equations that come from nonlinear models as well as to solve fractional differential equations Das-1 ; Das-2 ; Das-3 .
The Kundu-Eckhaus equation has been studied by many researchers and those studies done through varied and different methods have yielded much information related to the behavior of their solutions. The mathematical structure of Kundu-Eckhaus equation was studied for the first time in Eck and Kundu . For example, in Wang the authors applied Bäcklund transformation for obtaining bright and dark soliton solutions to the Eckhaus-Kundu equation with the cubic-quintic nonlinearity. After much research have been related to the equation by various methods, many of them can be found in Bek and Tag and some applications of the equation nonlinear optics can be found in Kod and Cla . Recently, in Haci the authors obtain obtain some new complex analytical solutions to the Kundu-Eckhaus equation which seems in the quantum field theory, weakly nonlinear dispersive water waves and nonlinear optics using improved Bernoulli sub-equation function method.
In the presente work we will utilize the Adomian decomposition method in combination with the Laplace transform (LADM) Waz-Lap to solve the Kundu-Eckhaus equation. This equation is a nonlinear partial differential equation that, in nonlinear optics, is used to model some dispersion phenomena. We will decomposed the nonlinear terms of this equation using the Adomian polynomials and then, in combination with the use of the Laplace transform, we will obtain an algorithm to solve the problem subject to initial conditions. Finally, we will illustrate our procedure and the quality of the obtained algorithm by means of the solution of an example in which the Kundu-Eckhaus equation is solved for some initial condition and we will compare the results with previous results reported in the literature.
Our work is divided in several sections. In “The Adomian Decomposition Method Combined With Laplace Transform” section, we present, in a brief and self-contained manner, the LADM. Several references are given to delve deeper into the subject and to study its mathematical foundation that is beyond the scope of the present work. In “The nonlinear Kundu-Eckhaus Equation” section, we give a brief introduction to the model described by the Kundu-Eckhaus equation and we will establish that LADM can be use to solve this equation in its nonlinear version. In “The General Solution of the Nonlinear Kundu-Eckhaus Equation Through LADM” and the “Numerical Example”, we will show by means of numerical examples, the quality and precision of our method, comparing the obtained results with the only exact solutions available in the literature Arzu . Finally, in the “Conclusion” section, we summarise our findings and present our final conclusions.

2 The Adomian Decomposition Method Combined With Laplace Transform

The ADM is a method to solve ordinary and partial nonlinear differential equations. Using this method is possible to express analytic solutions in terms of a series ADM-1 ; Waz-El . In a nutshell, the method identifies and separates the linear and nonlinear parts of a differential equation. Inverting and applying the highest order differential operator that is contained in the linear part of the equation, it is possible to express the solution in terms of the rest of the equation affected by the inverse operator. At this point, the solution is proposed by means of a series with terms that will be determined and that give rise to the Adomian Polynomials Waz-0 . The nonlinear part can also be expressed in terms of these polynomials. The initial (or the border conditions) and the terms that contain the independent variables will be considered as the initial approximation. In this way and by means of a recurrence relations, it is possible to find the terms of the series that give the approximate solution of the differential equation.
Given a partial (or ordinary) differential equation


with initial condition


where is a differential operator that could, in general, be nonlinear and therefore includes some linear and nonlinear terms.
In general, equation (1) could be written as


where , is a linear operator that includes partial derivatives with respect to , is a nonlinear operator and is a non-homogeneous term that is -independent.
Solving for , we have


The Laplace transform is an integral transform discovered by Pierre-Simon Laplace and is a powerful and very useful technique for solving ordinary and partial differential Equations, which transforms the original differential equation into an elementary algebraic equation Lap . Before using the Laplace transform combined with Adomian decomposition method we review some basic definitions and results on it.
Definition 1 Given a function defined for all , the Laplace transform of is the function defined by


for all values of for which the improper integral converges. In particular .
It is well known that there exists a bijection between the set of functions satisfying some hypotheses and the set of their Laplace transforms. Therefore, it is quite natural to define the inverse Laplace transform of .
Definition 2 Given a continuous function , if , then is called the inverse Laplace transform of and denoted .
The Laplace transform has the derivative properties:


where the superscript denotes the derivative with respect to for , and with respect to for .
The LADM consists of applying Laplace transform Waz-Lap first on both sides of Eq. (4), obtaining


An equivalent expression to (8) is


In the homogeneous case, , we have


now, applying the inverse Laplace transform to equation (10)


The ADM method proposes a series solution given by,


The nonlinear term is given by


where is the so-called Adomian polynomials sequence established in Waz-0 and Ba and, in general, give us term to term:

Other polynomials can be generated in a similar way. For more details, see Waz-0 and Ba and references therein. Some other approaches to obtain Adomian’s polynomials can be found in Duan ; Duan1 .
Using (12) and (13) into equation (11), we obtain,


From the equation (14) we deduce the following recurrence formulas


Using (15) we can obtain an approximate solution of (1), (2) using


It becomes clear that, the Adomian decomposition method, combined with the Laplace transform needs less work in comparison with the traditional Adomian decomposition method. This method decreases considerably the volume of calculations. The decomposition procedure of Adomian will be easily set, without linearising the problem. In this approach, the solution is found in the form of a convergent series with easily computed components; in many cases, the convergence of this series is very fast and only a few terms are needed in order to have an idea of how the solutions behave. Convergence conditions of this series are examined by several authors, mainly in Y1 ; Y2 ; Y3 ; Y4 . Additional references related to the use of the Adomian Decomposition Method, combined with the Laplace transform, can be found in Waz-Lap ; ADM-2 ; Khu .

3 The Nonlinear Kundu-Eckhaus Equation

In mathematical physics, the Kundu-Eckhaus equation is a nonlinear partial differential equations within the nonlinear Schrödinger class Eck ; Kundu :


In the equation (17) the dependent variable is a complex-valued function of two real variables and . The equation (17) is a basic model that describes optical soliton propagation in Kerr media Por . The complete integrability and multi-soliton solutions, breather solutions, and various types of rogue wave solutions associated with the Kundu-Eckhaus equation have been widely reported by many authors Ank ; Ban ; Per ; Por . Nevertheless, in optic fiber communications systems, one always has to increase the intensity of the incident light field to produce ultrashort (femtosecond) optical pulses Zha . In this case, the simple NLS equation is inadequate to accurately describe the phenomena, and higher-order nonlinear terms, such as third-order dispersion, self-steepening, and self-frequency shift, must be taken into account Waz-x ; Wang ; Wang-1 .
Explicitly calculating the derivatives that appear in equation (17), we obtain


To make the description of the the problem complete, we will consider some initial condition

In the following section we will develop an algorithm using the method described in section 2 in order to solve the nonlinear Kundu-Eckhaus equation (18) without resort to any truncation or linearization.

4 The General Solution of the Nonlinear Kundu-Eckhaus Equation Through LADM

Comparing (18) with equation (4) we have that , and becomes:


while the nonlinear term is given by


By using now equation (15) through the LADM method we obtain recursively


Note that, the nonlinear term can be split into three terms to facilitate calculations

from this, we will consider the decomposition of the nonlinear terms into Adomian polynomials as


Calculating, we obtain

Now, considering (22), (23) and (24), we have


then, the Adomian polynomials corresponding to the nonlinear part are

Using the expressions obtained above for equation (18), we will illustrate, with two examples, the efectiveness of LADM to solve the nonlinear Kundu-Eckhaus equation.

5 Numerical Example

Using Laplace Adomian decomposition method (LADM), we solve this Kundu-Eckhaus equation subject to the initial condition . Here is the imaginary unit and with .
To use ADM, the equation (18) is decomposed in the operators (19) and (20).

Through the LADM (21), we obtain recursively



With the above, we have
