Abstract:

By adding one term to the Lagrangian density that governs classical electromagnetic theory via Maxwells equations, a parameter-free nonlinear generalization can be formulated. Some properties of plane waves, wavepackets, and self-focussed beams in the resulting nonlinear vector field theory are discussed. Author
