Conference paper


The spatial (or spatio-temporal) solitons present localized patterns in wide-operture nonlinear-optical systems. Their global features, as well as character of their interaction, vary significantly in different systems. In the present paper I describe and compare the features of spatial solitons in a number of coherent passive and active wide-aperture optical systems with fast nonlinearity.
