Abstract

We use a collective coordinate approach to investigate corpuscular properties of breathers in nonlinear lattice systems. We calculate the breather internal energy and inertial mass and use them to analyze the reaction pathways of breathers with kinks that are preformed in the lattice. We find that there is an effective kink-breather intraction potential that, under some circumstances, is attractive and has a double well shape. Furthermore, we find that in some cases the internal energy of a moving breather can be relased during the reaction with the kink and subsequently transformed to kink translational energy. These breather properties seem to be model independent.
