Paper Abstract

We report on a generalization of the eigenfunction expansion method to model the performance of multichannel optical-fiber communications systems in the presence of nonlinear phase noise. Our method is fast, accurate, and easy to implement for numerical simulations in multichannel wavelength-division multiplexed (WDM) systems. We also account for the dispersion to all orders for increased accuracy in multichannel systems.
