|Abstract: ||The interaction of two lump solitons described by the Kadomtsev-Petviashvili I(KPI)
equation is analyzed using both exact and numerical methods. The numerical method
is based on a third order Runge-Kutta method, and a Crank- Nicholson scheme. The
main characteristic of a direct interaction when the two lumps are initially aligned along
the x-axis, is that they may separate in the y-direction, but then come back to the xaxis
after collision; the dependence of the maximum separation in the y-direction on
the relative velocity difference is described. Two lumps may also experience an abrupt
phase change in the case of an oblique interaction.|
