Conference paper
Part of the The IMA Volumes in Mathematics and Its Applications book series (IMA, volume 25)


Properties of transient solitons in stimulate Raman scattering are reviewed and described. Work to date on application of spectral transform methods and the proof that permanent solitons cannot exist is outlined.
