We have introduced a novel class of higher-order spatial optical Ince–Gaussian solitons (IGSs) that constitute the third complete family of exact and orthogonal soliton solutions of the Snyder–Mitchell model. The transverse structure of the IGSs is characterized by the Ince polynomials and has an inherent elliptical symmetry. The IGSs form the exact and continuous transition modes between Hermite–Gaussian solitons and Laguerre–Gaussian solitons.
