Paper Abstract

The wave equation has been solved in the first approximation to investigate the process of self- diffraction of ultrashort light pulses in a nonlinear medium. A new theoretical method for the analysis of the behavior of ultrashort pulses in a nonlinear medium is proposed. Comparison of the new method and the slowly varying amplitudes method is made. The two methods are shown to be identical for long pulses, whereas in the case of ultrashort pulses the slowly varying amplitudes method leads to incorrect results.
