Abstract

We investigate analytically and numerically the interactions of dark solitons under competing nonlocal cubic and local quintic nonlinearities. It is shown that the self-defocusing quintic nonlinearity will strengthen the attractive interaction and decrease the relative distance between solitons, whereas the self-focusing quintic nonlinearity will enhance the repulsive interaction and increase soliton separation. We demonstrate these results by approximate variational approach and direct numerical simulation.
