Abstract

The formation of multisoliton bound states in a homogenous bulk medium in the form of rotating ringlike clusters was discussed. Five-lobe analog of the necklace-ring vector solitons was shown. The ringlike soliton clusters provided a nontrivial generalization of the concepts of two-soliton spiraling, optical vortex solitons and necklace-type optical beams.
