Integrability and Conservation Laws for the Nonlinear Evolution Equations of Partially Coherent Waves in Noninstantaneous Kerr Media
Journal article, 2012

It is shown that the evolution equations describing partially coherent wave propagation in noninstantaneous Kerr media are integrable and have an infinite number of invariants. A recursion relation for generating these invariants is presented, and it is demonstrated how to express them in the coherent density, self-consistent multimode, mutual coherence, and Wigner formalisms.
