Paper Abstract

In the paper propagation of two overlapping light pulses in saturable nonlinear medium of Kerr type is analyzed. During their interaction higher order effects are taken into account. The total field of both pulses satisfies Higher Order Nonlinear Schrödinger Equation (HONSE). This equation is being solved analytically and numerically for the field describing sum of two concentric solitons - one high and narrow and the second low but very wide. The approximate analytical solution of HONSE is obtained by means of canonical method. The derived ten Euler-Lagrange equations can be solved analytically if parameters of considered solitons significantly differ. The obtained solution describes oscillations of altitude and width of the narrow soliton and monotonous change of parameters of the wide component - its width increases and altitude decreases during propagation. The correspondence between numeric and analytical solutions is analyzed.
