The second edition of Optical Soliton in Fibers was published in 1989 when the first generation long-distance soliton transmission had just began to emerge. The first and second editions intended to introduce the basic concept and properties of optical solitons in fibers and methods of constructing an all-optical transmission system by taking advantage of the robust nature of a soltion.
