    Abstract

    Solitons confined in a channel are studied in the two-dimensional nonlinear Schrödinger equation. When a channel branches into two channels, a soliton is split into two solitons, if the initial kinetic energy exceeds a critical value. The branching point works as a pulse splitter. If it is below the critical value, the soliton is reflected. The critical kinetic energy for splitting is evaluated by a variational method. The variational method can be applied in the design of channel systems with reduced reflection.

If it is below the critical value, the soliton is reflected. The critical kinetic energy for splitting is evaluated by a variational method.
