Burke, J., Houghton, S.M. and Knobloch, E. (2009) Swift-Hohenberg equation with broken reflection symmetry. Physical Review E, 80 (3). 036202-1. ISSN 1539-3755
The bistable Swift-Hohenberg equation possesses a variety of time-independent spatially localized solutions organized in the so-called snakes-and-ladders structure. This structure is a consequence of a phenomenon known as homoclinic snaking, and is in turn a consequence of spatial reversibility of the equation. We examine here the consequences of breaking spatial reversibility on the snakes-and-ladders structure. We find that the localized states now drift, and show that the snakes-and-ladders structure breaks up into a stack of isolas. We explore the evolution of this new structure with increasing reversibility breaking and study the dynamics of the system outside of the snaking region using a combination of numerical and analytical techniques.
