Abstract

We apply quasi-exact numerical techniques to the calculation of stationary one- and two-dimensional, bound multipeaked cavity soliton solutions of a model describing a saturable absorber in a driven optical cavity. We calculate the existence and stability domains of a wide range of such states and determine the perturbative eigenmodes that cause loss of stability. We relate the existence of N-peaked states to the locking range between patterned and homogeneous solutions, as a function of two parameters.
