Abstract
The propagation of multiple-humped bright solitary waves in a diffractive medium with second-order nonlinearity is studied. It is shown that the multiple-humped bright solitary waves occur only for negative phase mismatches in a small interval of nonlinear wave numbers shifts and above a certain threshold energy flow. Numerical experiments reveal that the multiple-humped stationary solitary waves are unstable on propagation. The evolution of multiple-humped solitary waves shows that the instability leads to one of the following three scenarios of the solitary wave dynamics: (1) the spreading of the solitary wave, (2) the formation of a single-humped solitary wave from a multiple-humped solitary wave in a fusion-like process, and (3) the decay of the multiple-humped solitary waves into several fragments consisting of single-humped solitary waves.
