High frequency integrable regimes in nonlocal nonlinear optics. (English) Zbl 1121.78011

From the authors’ abstract:
We consider an integrable model which describes light beams propagating in nonlocal nonlinear media of Cole-Cole type. The model is derived as high frequency limit of both Maxwell equations and the nonlocal nonlinear Schrödinger equation. We demonstrate that for a general form of nonlinearity there exist self-guided light beams. In high frequency limit nonlocal perturbations can be seen as a class of phase deformation along one direction. We study in detail nonlocal perturbations described by the dispersionless Veselov-Novikov hierarchy.
