Author Affiliations +
A variational approach with an arbitrary ansatz is used to derive the governing equations for the characteristic parameters of dispersion-managed solitons. Both Gaussian and super-Gaussian pulse profiles are considered as particular cases. The fundamental dynamics of DM pulses are characterized by their pulse width and frequency chirp. The possibility of soliton propagation when the average dispersion is zero or normal is examined.
