Paper Abstract

Using exact results previously obtained we investigate the spreading of a propagating pulse due to higher order dispersion. An explicit example is considered where the spread and associated quantities are calculated exactly. We also discuss the effects of higher order dispersion on the contraction of pulses. We show that the average frequency of the initial pulse plays a much more important role when higher order terms are included.
