Manakov Spatial Solitons

J. U. Kang, G. I. Stegeman, J. S. Aitchison

The Manakov soliton is a two-component soliton that was first considered by Manakov in the early 1970s. Based on the work of Zakharov and Shabat, Manakov found that the coupled nonlinear Schrödinger (CNSE) equations with special choice of the coefficients in front of nonlinear terms can be solved exactly. This system is inte¬grable and solitons have therefore a number of special properties which might be useful in practice.
