This is the website of the Laboratory of Nonlinear Photonics and Theoretical Physics at the Department of Physics of the University Sapienza and the Institute for Complex Systems of the National Research Council. Our program is applying paradigms from the science of complex systems to light propagation, and investigating the development of complexity and self-organization in nonlinear waves. We want to test and deepen ideas of fundamental physics by using optics and photonics, and developing experiments, high performance computing approaches, and theory.

Irreversibility of Shock Waves Explained by Nonlinear Gamow Vectors
Editors of Physical Review A have retained among their suggestions a paper published by Silvia Gentilini, Maria Chiara Braidotti, Giulia Marcucci, Eugenio Del Re and Claudio Conti about a novel theoretical approach for the description of shock waves in nonlinear nonlocal media.
The novel theory is based on ideas retained from Irreversible Quantum Mechanics, a novel formulation of quantum mechanics based on the so-called Rigged Hilbert Space that include explonential decaying wavefuctions.
The theory describes the shock and wave-breaking scenario beyond the limits of the usual hydrodynamic approach, and allows to derive closed forms for the degree of irreversibility. This approach also introduces the "nonlinear Gamow Vectors," a novel kind of nonlinear waves with many possible applications in nonlinear physics.
