Photonconserving generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equation for frequencydependent nonlinearities
(2020)"Pulse propagation in nonlinear waveguides is most frequently modeled by resorting to the generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equation (GNLSE). In recent times, exciting new materials with peculiar nonlinear properties, such ... 
A higherorder perturbation analysis of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation

On the application of a diffusive memristor compact model to neuromorphic circuits
(2019)"Memristive devices have found application in both random access memory and neuromorphic circuits. In particular, it is known that their behavior resembles that of neuronal synapses. However, it is not simple to come by ... 
Permutation entropy based time series analysis: equalities in the input signal can lead to false conclusions
(201706)"A symbolic encoding scheme, based on the ordinal relation between the amplitude of neighboring values of a given data sequence, should be implemented before estimating the permutation entropy. Consequently, equalities in ...

(201703)"In this paper several causal Information Theory quantifiers, i.e. Shannon entropy, statistical complexity and Fisher information using the Bandt and Pompe permutation probability distribution, measure are applied to ... 
Characteristics and stability of soliton crystals in optical fibres for the purpose of optical frequency comb generation
(201706)"We study the properties of a soliton crystal, a bound state of several optical pulses that propagate with a fixed temporal separation through the optical fibres of the proposed approach for generation of optical frequency ... 
Clogging transition of vibrationdriven vehicles passing through constrictions
(201712)"We report experimental results on the competitive passage of elongated selfpropelled vehicles rushing through a constriction. For the chosen experimental conditions, we observe the emergence of intermittencies similar ... 
Simulating competitive egress of noncircular pedestrians
(201704)"We present a numerical framework to simulate pedestrian dynamics in highly competitive conditions by means of a forcebased model implemented with spherocylindrical particles instead of the traditional, symmetric disks. ... 
Model selection: Using information measures from ordinal symbolic analysis to select model subgridscale parameterizations
(2017)"The use of information measures for model selection in geophysical models with subgrid parameterizations is examined. Although the resolved dynamical equations of atmospheric or oceanic global numerical models are well ... 
Antistokes Raman gain enabled by modulation instability in midIR waveguides
(201811)"The inclusion of selfsteepening in the linear stability analysis of modulation instability (MI) leads to a power cutoff above which the MI gain vanishes. Under these conditions, MI in midIR waveguides is shown to give ...
