LOPEZ-AGUAYO, S.; ESPARZA-ECHEVARRIA, M.; LEM-CARRILLO, G.  and  GUTIERREZ-VEGA, J. C.. Ondas solitarias no lineales: una introducción a los solitones ópticos espaciales. Rev. mex. fís. E [online]. 2014, vol.60, n.1, pp.39-50. ISSN 1870-3542.

The basic theory of spatial optical solitons is reviewed, focusing on fundamental bright solitons. The Physics of solitons is illustrated with two programs developed in MATLAB. One of these programs PetviaJMex, calculates the profile of fundamental solitons corresponding to the generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equation, while the other program SSF_Mex, simulates the paraxial propagation of optic beams in non-linear media. Using both codes, various phenomena of spatial optical solitons are discussed to stimulate the interest of the reader into soliton theory and Nonlinear Physics in general.

Keywords : Solitons; nonlinear waves; solitary waves; nonlinear optics.
