Using the shooting method to solve boundary-value problems involving nonlinear coupled-wave equations

Part 2 Degenerate four-wave mixing
  • Y. H. Ja


The shooting method has been used to obtain numerical solutions of the nonlinear coupled-wave equations for degenerate four-wave mixing in a reflection geometry. The principle of the shooting method has been described in Part 1 of the paper [1]. Numerical results are obtained from computer calculations and presented in graphical form.
