Variational model of bright beam evolution in weakly non-local media

K. Bezuhanov, G. Maleshkov, A. Dreischuh


In this work we model the nonlinear propagation of bright Gausian beams in the presence of a weak nonlocality. The variational results indicate an increase of the soliton power with increasing the nonlocality. Conditions for generating "breathing" 1D solitons are derived.
