The development of a single-channel soliton lightwave system is discussed with an emphasis on the principles of soliton wave
propagation, amplification, system design and performance degradation issues.
As shown in Figure 6, the nonlinear coefficient D increases with each of q, [[sigma].sub.p] and [[sigma].sub.n], but as shown from (19b) that D must be greater than zero to envelope a soliton wave
Long  and Benney  studied long waves in barotropic fluid and obtained a KdV equation, which is a famous soliton wave
equation and also can be used to describe internal tide [3-5].
Due to its higher amplitude, the latter travels faster, allowing an interaction between the two soliton waves
The introduction of the concept "soliton automaton" in  has been inspired by this research, with the intention to capture the phenomenon called soliton waves
 through an appropriate graph model.
His own artistic efforts which try to explain some of the understanding he has gained from his tour d'horizon of contemporary science are charming, but rather slight: a set of wrought-iron gates with twisted strips symbolises soliton waves
; a pleasing landscape device of interwoven ramps and water is supposed to involve us with the notion of the folded wave; a sideboard incised with wavy lines illustrates non-linearity.
