Abstract

We develop the first analytical theory of multikinks in strongly dispersive nonlinear systems, considering the examples of the weakly discrete sine-Gordon model and the generalized Frenkel-Kontorova model with a piecewise parabolic potential. We reveal the existence of discrete sets of 2\pi N-kinks, and also show their bifurcation structure in driven damped systems, in agreement with earlier reported numerical simulations.
