20 April 2006 Variational approach to dispersion-managed solitons
Author Affiliations +
A variational approach with an arbitrary ansatz is used to derive the governing equations for the characteristic parameters of dispersion-managed solitons. The Gaussian pulses are considered as a particular case. The possibility of soliton propagation when the average dispersion is zero or normal is examined. Both polarization preserving fibers and birefringent fibers are considered.
