### Numerical computation of solitons for optical systems

In this paper, we present numerical methods for the determination of solitons, that consist in spatially localized stationary states of nonlinear scalar equations or coupled systems arising in nonlinear optics. We first use the well-known shooting method in order to find excited states (characterized by the number $k$ of nodes) for the classical nonlinear Schrödinger equation. Asymptotics can then be derived in the limits of either large $k$ are large nonlinear exponents $\sigma $. In a second part, we compute...
