Abstract
We develop a nonlinear thin-film theory. By using a superposition of plane waves with a thin-layer approximation the Kerr-Maxwell equation is solved exactly within a thin slab. The characteristic matrix of the Kerr-medium resembles the corresponding linear matrix, but the wave vectors now are field dependent. The linear result is recovered in the limit of vanishing nonlinearity. We also discuss alternative theories for fields in nonlinear Kerr-media, based on variational principles and on perturbative Hamilton-Jacobi formalism.
