An analytical and simulation based method has been used to exactly solve the nonlinear Schrödinger’s equation (NLSE) and study the solitonic forms in a medium which exhibits frequency dependent dielectric permittivity (ε) and magnetic permeability (μ). The model has been extended to describe the propagation of a wave in a nonlinear negative refractive medium (NRM) which is dispersive and negative in nature.
