Nonlinear propagation of high-power femtosecond pulses close to the zero-dispersion wavelength of a singlemode optical fiber is studied experimentally and numerically. The roles of four-photon mixing, stimulated Raman scattering, and self-steepening in this process are represented through different extensions of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation.
