Abstract
We investigate the problem of nonlinear waves propagation in modulated nonlinear systems. The nonlinear optical medium with periodically changed in space refractive index represents the example of such modulated system. It is shown, that the dynamical equations for this system are similar to those for other modulated systems, e.g. diatomic elastic chain, two-sublattice ferromagnet and easy-plane antyferromagnet. The general type of dynamical equations for modulated systems with third-order nonlinearity is studied. The main result of our work is the qualitative analysis of all kinds of the small amplitude soliton excitations with frequencies lying in the gap and near the gap of the linear waves spectrum. We also study the evolution of the system phase portrait and bifurcation picture of the soliton solutions under changes of the medium parameters and nonlinear excitation frequency.
