Higher Order Solitons

A higher-order Soliton is a soliton pulse the Energy of which is higher than that of a fundamental soliton by a factor which is the square of an integer number (i.e., 4, 9, 16, etc.). The temporal shape of such a pulse is not constant, but rather varies periodically during propagation. The period of this evolution is the so-called soliton period.
