Abstract

We examine optical pulse propagation in a transmission system with periodical pulse amplification and dispersion compensation both numerically and by a variational method. We confirm by direct numerical simulations the validity of the concept of a "breathing" soliton, which we previously proposed. We demonstrate that the sign of the residual dispersion is responsible for the stability of the pulse stream.
