The variational method is used to model output pulse widths in concatenated fiber links designed for dispersion compensation. The expressions for the output widths are given in analytical form with explicit dependence on the key parameters of initial width and chirp, the dispersion constant ofeach fiber section and the length of each section. In the ideal linear case, perfect compensation occurs when the sum ofthe dispersion-distance products of the two links is zero. However, in the presence ofnonlinearities a new relationship is found to govern many operating systems. Specifically, the dispersion-distance product ofthe second link should equal minus one-half the dispersion-distance product ofthe first link.
