Paper Abstract

There is an interest in the study of nonlinear propagation along distributed electrical transmission lines. This is because these lines serve as useful models for nonlinear wave motion with dispersion in many interesting physical systems. Recently nonlinear wave motion with dispersion has been shown to produce solitons in optical fibers. To design infrared fibers with exotic properties, one often needs exotic materials. It is costly in time and money to try to produce these by strictly trial and error methods. Thus the usefulness of models becomes clear. Of course the electrical distributed lines themselves have an obvious direct application to integrated circuit parametric amplifiers, harmonic generators and shock wave generators for pulse shaping. They also have applications to secret or secure coding systems using two soliton interactions and to data transmission using solitons.
