A study of finite gap solutions to the nonlinear Schrödinger equation

Oliver H Warren
The vector nonlinear Schrödinger equation is an envelope equation which models the propagation of ultra-short light pulses and continuous-wave beams along optical fibres. Previous work has focused almost entirely on soliton solutions to the equation using a Lax representation originally developed by Manakov. We prove recursion formulae for the family of higher-order nonlinear Schrödinger equations, along with its associated Lax hierarchy, before investigating finite gap solutions using an algebrogeometric approach which introduces Baker-Akhiezer functions defined...
