Abstract

We investigate interactions between pulses in dispersion-managed multichannel wavelength-division-multiplexed soliton systems, using an improved variational approximation. The frequency shifts are found to be smallest for moderate, i.e., relatively short-scale, dispersion management. The position shifts increase monotonically with map strength.
