Abstract:
In this paper, we show that the solution of linear coupled mode equations (LCME) is a good approximation to that of the nonlinear coupled mode equations (NLCME) for small times, provided that the nonlinearity is weak. We bound the difference between the two solutions using energy estimates. We illustrate our findings in numerical examples.
