The derivation is presented of the nonlinear equations that describe the propagation of ultrashort laser pulses in a plasma, in the Plasmon-X device. It is shown that the Plasmon-X scheme used for the electron acceleration uses a sufficiently broad beam ($L_\bot\sim 130\,\,\mu{\rm m}$) that justifies the use of the standard stationary 1-D approximation in the electron hydrodynamic equations, since the pulse width is sufficiently bigger than the pulse length ($\sim 7.5\,\,\mu{\rm m…
