 Publisher's Summary
 Despite remarkable developments in the field, a detailed treatment of nonKerr law media has not been published. "Introduction to NonKerr Law Optical Solitons" is the first book devoted exclusively to optical soliton propagation in media that possesses nonKerr law nonlinearities. After an introduction to the basic features of fiberoptic communications, the book outlines the nonlinear Schrodinger equation (NLSE), conserved quantities, and adiabatic dynamics of soliton parameters. It then derives the NLSE for Kerr law nonlinearity from basic principles, the inverse scattering transform, and the 1soliton solution.The book also explains the variational principle and Lie transform. In each case of nonKerr law solitons, the authors develop soliton dynamics, evaluated integrals of motion, and adiabatic dynamics of soliton parameters based on multiplescale perturbation theory. The book explores intrachannel collision of optical solitons in both Hamiltonian and nonHamiltonian type perturbations. In addition, it examines the stochastic perturbation of optical solitons, the corresponding Langevin equations, and optical couplers, followed by an introduction to optical bullets. Establishing a basis in an important yet insufficiently documented subject, "Introduction to NonKerr Law Optical Solitons" will help fuel advances in optical communication systems.
