Abstract

We theoretically and numerically investigate the effect of focusing and defocusing nonlinearities on Anderson localization in highly nonlocal media. A perturbative approach is developed to solve the nonlocal nonlinear Schrödinger equation in the presence of a random potential, showing that nonlocality stabilizes Anderson states.
