Some LOCNET Results

A rich variety of discrete breathers have been demonstrated experimentally in Josephson junction ladders.

Principles for targetted energy transfer between localised vibrational states have been developed and tested numerically.

Discrete breathers have been proved to exist in hardening Fermi-Pasta-Ulam chains and related lattices.

Existence of a globally attracting sliding solution has been proved for overdamped inertial dynamics of tilted Frenkel-Kontorova chains.

Experimental work has been carried out on methyl rotations and proton transfer in molecular crystals.
