Analytical expressions are presented for Manakov solitons perturbed by polarization mode dispersion (PMD). Comparison is made with computer simulations. Dispersion-managed solitons are also studied. It is concluded that at high bit rates solitons are superior to linear return-to-zero propagation with regard to PMD.
