Abstract

With a simple model, scaling laws are obtained for self-compression in the limit of a large soliton number. Numerical results for Gaussian and hyperbolic-secant initial pulse shapes and various initial amplitudes are used to verify the approximate analytic result and to determine accurate scaling constants. Self-decompression (self-dispersion) is also treated in the same fashion.
