Abstract

A perturbation theory is developed for vector solitons, based on the derivation of the adiabatic evolution of the vector–soliton parameters under a generic perturbation. This perturbation theory was used to describe interactions between vector solitons and the related intersoliton forces. Some specific cases were analyzed that showed the dynamics under the mixture of coherent and incoherent forces characterizing the vector–soliton interactions.
