Spatial optical solitons

I will review some recent advances in the physics optical spatial solitons and nonlinear localized modes as well as their links to the modern topics of photonics such as the study of arrays of plasmonic particles or lattices of nonlinear split-ring resonators.  I will specifically emphasize the great contribution of Allan Boardman into the field of optical solitons and nonlinear guided waves.
