Abstract

Breathers are intrinsic localised modes which appear in a broad range of discrete nonlinear systems including Bose-Einstein condensates (BEC) in optical lattices, arrays of optical waveguides [1], and macromolecules such as DNA, RNA or biopolymers [2]. Through their very existence, breathers can drastically inhibit quantum transport phenomena, as it will become apparent from this work.
