Author 



 
Abstract 



In this paper the Backlund transformations technique and Painleve analysis are used to generate classes of exact soliton solutions for some nonlinear evolution equations. For the (1+1)dimensional problem, the unstable system of plasma equations where an electron beam is injected under a highfrequency electric field is reduced to the unstable nonlinear Schrodinger (UNLS) equation. Using the DarbouxBargmann technique, we obtain the Backlund transformations for UNLS equation solvable by the inverse scattering method of ZakharovShabat/AblowitzKaupNewellSegur (ZS/AKNS) and the ZS/AKNS wave functions corresponding to the soliton solutions of this equation.
