Abstract

Applying variational methods, we derive a reduced system of equations from the nonlocal equation that governs the average dynamics in dispersion-managed systems. These equations, which apply for any type of return-to-zero pulse, describe the stroboscopic evolution of the pulse parameters and bypass the fast variations inside each dispersion map. In the limit of large map strength we integrate the equations to obtain explicitly formulas for the parameters of a chirped return-to-zero pulse as well as the amount of post-transmission compensation needed to restore the initial pulse width.
