Abstract

It is approximately 15 years since the first theory of optical solitons in fibers was published. During this period, not only was the experimental verification of the existence of solitons (both bright and dark) demonstrated, but also various properties of the soliton derivable from the result of the inverse scattering theory were identified. The model of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation for describing optical solitons in a glass fiber has been established.
