Stability of Dirac solitons
Dmitry PelinovskyMcMaster University
We shall review orbital stability of solitons in the integrable Dirac equation known as the massive Thirring model. Orbital stability is obtained by using two different methods: one method relies on the higher-order energy conservation and the other one relies on the Backlund transformation. We shall also give numerical and analaytical results on the transverse stability of Dirac solitons under symmetry-breaking perturbations.
