In this chapter, partially following Leble (Optical Solitons. Theoretical and Experimental Challenges. Springer, Berlin, pp. 71–104, 2003) [1], we sketch the basic mathematical tools used in the theory of integrable systems embedded into the waveguide propagation of nonlinear waves, starting from general relations and illustrating them by simple examples.
