Paper Abstract

Using the modified generalized method of moments the equation of motion are derived for the parameters of a misaligned astigmatic Gaussian beam with torsion in an axially symmetric nonlinear medium. Nontrivial features of beam dynamics are revealed in a parabolic waveguide with Kerr nonlinearity. Peculiarities of near-resonance self- action of an axial beam depending upon the Lorentz-to- Doppler linewidth ratio are analyzed numerically.
