Abstract

Third-harmonic generation in cholesteric liquid crystals, far-infrared generation by ultrashort pulses, and self-focusing of light in nonlinear media are taken as examples for illustration of nonlinear optical effects. Depending on the problems, different approximations are used in solving the nonlinear wave equations. Connection between nonlinear optical effects and properties of the media is briefly discussed.
