This review focuses on the principal nonlinear optical effects in fibers and their most useful application. The authors suggest that nonlinear fiber optics has not only revived the old nonlinear optical laser radiation conversion techniques and indicated new ones, but has also stimulated progress in the theoretical studies of nonlinear optics. Anyone interested in the growing experimental and theoretical studies in the field will find this book an absorbing source of information.
