Abstract

The emergence of very stable traveling intrinsic localized modes (ILMs) locked to a uniform driver is demonstrated in a discrete electrical transmission line. The speed of these traveling ILMs is tunable by the driver amplitude and frequency. It is found to be quite sensitive to the ratio of intersite to on-site nonlinearity. The number of traveling ILMs can also be selected via the driving conditions and appears to be the result of a spatiotemporal pattern selection process.
