Abstract

The paper presents and extended survey of the application of the variational analysis to nonlinear media and waveguides. In particular, propagation of spatio-temporal light pulses under the combined effects of Kerr-like nonlinearity, dispersion and diffraction is investigated. Special emphasis is devoted to the problem of finding stable stationary solutions, with particular attention also to the physical meaning and acceptability of the analytical results.
