Part of the Springer Series in Photonics book series (PHOTONICS, volume 9)


In order to provide insight to the nature of a lightwave in an optical fiber, in this chapter, we introduce a macroscopic theory of dielectric materials and describe a mathematical formulation of a wave envelope in a nonlinear dispersive medium and in a glass fiber.
