Title: Consistent dynamics of the components of an elliptically polarised wave with zero mean amplitudes in a nonlinear isotropic gyrotropic medium in the adiabatic approximation

The adiabatic approximation is used to obtain an analytical solution to a nonintegrable problem of propagation of a plane elliptically polarised light wave with zero mean amplitudes of orthogonal circularly polarised field components through an isotropic gyrotropic medium with local and nonlocal components of Kerr nonlinearity and second-order group velocity dispersion. We describe the aperiodic evolution of bound (attributable to the medium nonlinearity) paired states, which are responsible for the propagation of two orthogonal polarisation components – cnoidal waves with significantly different periods.
