### Phase-amplitude dynamics of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation with rapid forcing

Abstract:

We consider the initial value problem for the forced one dimensional nonlinear Schrödinger equation (NLS), where the forcing is assumed to be fast compared to the evolution of the unforced equation. This suggests the introduction of two time scales. Solutions to the forced NLS are sought by expressing the dependent variable in modulus-phase form and expanding in powers of a small parameter, which is inversely related to the forcing time scale. This system is similar to a forced eikonal-transp...
