Asymptotic behavior of extremely short optical pulses in a system of carbon nanotubes is analyzed. The electromagnetic field is considered in the context of the Maxwell equations, and the electron system of carbon nanotubes is considered in the low-temperature approximation of quantum mechanics. By means of numerical modeling, the range of parameters is established for which the examined system is described by the asymptotes of the sine-Gordon equations.
