Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We investigate nonlinear pulse interaction in moderately dispersion-managed (DM) optical transmission lines by means of the variational approach (VA), putting forward a new ansatz that combines a Gaussian core and exponentially decaying tails. Comparison with direct simulations shows that VA provides for a fairly accurate description of the interaction of two pulses in one channel. The interactions in the moderate-DM model prove to be essentially suppressed in comparison with the strong-DM one.
