when ? > 0, a < 0. If we take ? > 0, a > 0, then we obtain, with similar calculations,
that

Case 2. A = 0, n = 2, a = 0. In this case we also have ? = const, and (15) becomes

Equation (16) can be solved using Jacobian elliptic functions. For the de?nitions, we
refer to [29]. Following [30], we take a, ? and C as functions of a real parameter ?,
with |?| < 1, and using the generic notation E(?, ?) for solutions of (16), we have the
following table of exact solutions:

E(?, ?) a(?) ?(?) C(?)

1 + ?2 2?2
cd = cn/dn 1
1 ? 2?2 ?2 (?2 ? 1)
ds = dn/sn 2
1 + ?2 ?2
dc = dn/cn 2

Using this table and the notation of Section 2.3, we ?nd that

? = e?i(a(?)(?x)+(?x)/2) E(?x, ?)

is an exact solution of

2? = ??(?)|?|2 ?,

where a(?) and ?(?) are the appropriate functions of the parameter ?, as given in the
above table. This gives us elliptic solutions of a nonlinear relativistic wave equation.
We note that solutions of nonlinear wave equations in terms of elliptic functions were
obtained by Petiau [35]. The solutions we present here are for a di?erent nonlinearity.
Case 3. n = 2, a = 0. If we put n = 2 and a = 0 in (15), we obtain the equation

where ?(?) is the Weierstrass elliptic function (see [29]), provided that 27A4 +8C 3 /? =

Next we turn to the case G1 + aP1 , G2 in Table 1. The reduced equation is

Using the amplitude-phase representation ? = ?ei? in this equation, as before, we ?nd
the following system:

? = ??F (?). (18)

Equation (17) integrates immediately to give
C

?(? ? a)
where C is a constant of integration. Using this, (18) now yields

C
? = ?? F d? + C1 .
?(? ? a)
Combining this with the corresponding ansatz for the solution v of (8), and using the
notation of Section 2.3, we obtain that

4 Special solutions of some nonlinear
complex wave equations
In this section we give some particular solutions of some multi-dimensional hyperbolic
(‘relativistic’) equations which can be reduced to Schr?dinger equations with our
o
ansatz (7). In some cases, the nonlinear Schr?dinger equation involved admits a soliton
o
solution in 1+1 space-time.
First we take the hyperbolic equation

2? = ?|?|n ?.

The ansatz (7) (with k = ?1/2) reduces this to

ivt + ?v + ?|v|n v = 0,

as we have already noted. It is a simple matter to verify that for ? = a2 b2 n

n
we have
exp(4ia2 b2 t/n2 )
v=
cosh2/n (ba · y)
as a solution. Here a = (a1 , a2 ), y = (y1 , y2 ), where a = (a1 , a2 ) is an arbitrary vector
and b an arbitrary real number. Applying the Galilean boosts (which are symmetries
of the above nonlinear Schr?dinger equation)

v= ,
cosh2/n (ba · (y ? V t))
where V = (V1 , V2 ) is an arbitrary vector. For n = 2 and in 1+1 space-time, we have

exp[i(a2 b2 t + V y/2 ? V 2 t/4)]
v= ,
cosh(ab(y ? V t))
Solutions of the relativistic nonlinear wave equation 91

which is the Zakharov–Shabat soliton. Finally, using (7), we obtain
exp[i(??x/2 + 4a2 b2 (?x)/n2 + (V1 (?x) + V2 (?x))/2 ? V 2 (?x)/4)]
?=
cosh2/n (b[a1 (?x ? V1 t) + a2 (?x ? V2 (?x))])
as a solution of

in 1+3 space-time.
There are some other hyperbolic equations which can be reduced to nonlinear
Schr?dinger equations, but with nonlinearities involving derivatives. The hyperbolic
o
equations of the form
2? = ?F (|?|, |?|µ |?|µ )? (20)
can also be reduced to nonlinear Schr?dinger equations with derivative nonlinearities,
o
using the same ansatz (7) (which is not surprising as the same symmetry operator is
responsible for the ansatz). Indeed, ansatz (7) with k = ?1/2 gives us
ivt + ?v + ?F (|v|, ?|v|a |v|a )v = 0, (21)
where |v|a |v|a = |v|21 + |v|22 . Equations of the type (21) were discussed in [21] from
y y
a group-theoretical point of view. One of this type of Schr?dinger equations is

(22)
ivt + ?v = 2 v,
|v|2
|v|a |v|a
with ? = ?2 and F (|v|, |v|a |v|a ) = |v|2 . Equation (22) admits the two solutions:

exp(?ia2 t) exp(?ia2 t)
v=A , v=A ,
cosh(a · y) sinh(a · y)
where a = (a1 , a2 ) is an arbitrary vector and A is an arbitrary number. Applying the
