Abstract
The nonlinear dynamics of selfbound BoseEinstein matter waves under the action of an attractive nonlocal and a repulsive local interaction is analyzed by means of a timedependent variational formalism. The meanfield model described by the GrossPitaevskii equation is reduced to a single secondorder conservative ordinary differential equation admitting a potential function. The stable fixed points and the linear oscillation frequencies of the breather modes are determined. The chosen nonlocal interactions are a Gaussianshaped potential and a van der Waalslike potential. The variational solutions are compared with direct numerical simulations of the GrossPitaevskii equation, for each of these nonlocalities. The spatiotemporal frequency spectra of linear waves are also determined.
