Paper Abstract

The new wave equation describing nonlinear propagation in isotropic dielectric media of any polarization optical pulses containing only a few oscillations of light field has been obtained. The polarization self-action of such extremely short pulses is shown to be in change of orientation of their electrical field amplitude vector along the direction of propagation proportional to a square of a field amplitude and the rotate velocity of amplitude vector.
