Abstract

An asymptotic method for calculating the collision-induced frequency and timing shifts for quasi-linear pulses in return-to-zero, wavelength-division multiplexed systems with predispersion and postdispersion compensation is developed. Predictions of the asymptotic theory agree well with quadrature and direct numerical simulations. Using this theory, computational savings of many orders of magnitude can be realized over direct numerical simulations.
