Abstract

We show from an elementary symmetry analysis that, in dispersion-compensated systems for which a lossless model is valid, nonlinearity requires a chirp-free point at the center of symmetry (if such exists) of the map for any kind of unique periodic solution. We also present an example of a more-complex map when the periodic solution is not unique.
