Abstract

In this paper, solutions are presented of calculations of the 2-D vector nonlinear Maxwell's equations for propagating and scattering temporal and spatial solitons in material media having linear and nonlinear instantaneous and Lorentzian dispersive effects in the electric polarization. The optical carrier is retained in these calculations. A finite difference method is used to solve Maxwell's equations and the ordinary differential equations that determine the linear and nonlinear dispersive effects.
