WHTW01 - Factorisation of matrix functions: New techniques and applications

To show that steadily propagating nonlinear waves in active matter can be driven internally, we develop a prototypical model of a topological kink moving with a constant supersonic speed in a discrete bi-stable FPU chain capable of generating active stress. In contrast to subsonic kinks in such systems, that are necessarily dissipative, the obtained supersonic solutions are purely anti-dissipative. Joint work with N. Gorbushin.
