We study a nonlinear Glauber–Fock lattice and the conditions for the excitation of localized structures. We investigate the particular linear properties of these lattices, including linear localized modes. We investigate numerically nonlinear modes centered in each site of the lattice. We found a strong disagreement of the general tendency between the stationary and the dynamical excitation thresholds. We define a new parameter that takes into account the stationary and dynamical properties of localized excitations.
