This book has been designed as a tutorial for the theory of nonlinear waves in optics. The emphasis is on the basic aspects of the theory, on analytical methods and on nondissipative phenomena. The selfinduced transparency phenomenon and short pulse propagation in fibres are good examples of the important role solitons play in nonlinear optics. The classical problem of nonlinear optics is the parametric interaction of waves. Three and fourwave parametric interaction processes are of particular interest because they enable new applications of the inverse scattering transform method to non linear systems without any dispersion. Surface and guided waves are considered as specific examples of nonlinear integrated optics. Audience: This volume will be of interest to those involved in electromagnetic theory, optics and optoelectronics, lasers and electrooptics, and the mathematics of physics.
