Abstract
We investigate via a combination of experiments and numerical analyses the collision of elastic vector solitons in a chain of rigid units connected by flexible hinges. Because of the vectorial nature of these solitons, very unusual behaviors are observed: while, as expected, the solitons emerge unaltered from the collision if they excite rotations of the same direction, they do not penetrate each other and instead repel one another if they...
