On self-similar singular solutions of the complex Ginzburg-Landau equation
Petr Plechac and Vladimír Šverák
We address the open problem of existence of singularities for the complex Ginzburg-Landau equation. Using a combination of rigourous results and numerical computations, we describe a countable family of self-similar singularities. Our analysis includes the super-critical non-linear Schrödinger equation as a special case, and most of the described singularities are new even in that situation. We also consider the problem of stability of these singularities.
