Abstract

Based on the Snyder–Mitchell model in the Cartesian coordinate system, exact analytical Hermite–Gaussian (HG) solutions are obtained in strongly nonlocal nonlinear media. The comparisons of analytical solutions with numerical simulations of the nonlocal nonlinear Schrödinger equation show that the analytical HG solutions are in good agreement with the numerical simulations in the case of strong nonlocality. Furthermore, we demonstrate that HG functions can be expressed as a linear superposition of individual Gaussian functions with a π phase difference under the appropriate conditions.
