Paper Abstract

We give a brief overview of recent results in the area of two- and three-dimensional doughnut-shaped localized structures with the inner phase fields in the form of rotating spirals, in the paradigmatic model based on the complex Ginzburg-Landau equation with competing cubic-quintic nonlinearities. It is shown that very robust two-dimensional and three-dimensional dissipative spiral solitons with (at least) the values of the topological charge S = 0, 1, and 2 can be easily generated from a large variety of inputs with embedded vorticity.
