It is shown how a straightforward regular perturbative analysis can be used to derive an integral equation for the spectral shape of a dispersion-managed soliton that takes fiber loss and amplification into account without resorting to averaging. Using functional analysis, one can then find an accurate approximate Gaussian solution that should prove useful for the design of a dispersion-managed transmission link.

  12. In Ref. a similar principle comes out of an averaged Hamiltonian analysis but is not used for deriving approximate analytical solutions of the underlying IE.
