Abstract: We study localized modes around a kink in generalized Frenkel-Kontorova models with anharmonic interparticle interactions. We show numerically that such anharmonicity can give rise to types of kink internal modes, which oscillate with frequencies lying in the gaps either above or below the phonon frequency band. We analyze the kink internal modes with collective-coordinate approaches, and show that the low-frequency internal modes describe the kink shape (slope) fluctuations, whereas the highest-frequency internal modes are characterized by the out-of-phase oscillations of a few particles near the kink center.
