The short pulse equation is integrable

  title={The short pulse equation is integrable},
  author={Anton Sakovich and Sergei Sakovich},
We prove that the Schäfer–Wayne short pulse equation (SPE) which describes the propagation of ultra-short optical pulses in nonlinear media is integrable. First, we discover a Lax pair of the SPE which turns out to be of the Wadati–Konno–Ichikawa type. Second, we construct a chain of transformations which relates the SPE with the sine-Gordon equation.
