Abstract
We numerically demonstrate the anomalous interactions of in-phase and out-of-phase Airy–Gaussian beams with intense excitation in nonlocal nonlinear (NL) media. We show that the stationary breathing Airy–Gaussian solitons and bound states can be formed with proper choice of the initial parameters. We report besides the traditional straight trajectory that the breathing Airy–Gaussian solitons can propagate along the sinusoidal trajectories, and the sinusoidal trajectories can be controlled arbitrarily. Moreover, we show the impacts of decay constant on the interaction dynamics of Airy–Gaussian beams in nonlocal NL media in detail. Interestingly, we find that the nonoverlapping bound states of Airy–Gaussian solitons can be formed in the interactions between two out-of-phase Airy–Gaussian beams.
