Evolution of supergaussian pulses in nonlinear Kerr media
AbstractThe propagation of temporal pulses through nonlinear Kerr media with an initial supergaussian shape is described analytically and numerically. The analytical description is based on the canonical method. For a supergaussian profile as the trial function, the Euler-Lagrange equations are derived and solved. Accuracy of the canonical description and it's regime of applicability is discussed.
