Paper Abstract

In this paper we consider an effective variational description for the optical pulse evolution in fiber links with dispersion management (varying dispersion). Instead of solving a nonlinear partial differential equation with varying coefficients, one can gain some important information about the features (e.g. breathing solitons) by an analysis of two ordinary differential equations. This approach provides a clear physical picture of the pulse evolution in a transmission line under the combined actions of nonlinearity, varying dispersion, fiber loss, and periodic amplification. An optical pulse propagation along a transmission line must be periodically reproduced.
