The physics behind coupling in coherent nonlinear optical structures
used as all-optical switches is briefly reviewed, and the assumptions
made in modelling these with coupled Duffing equations are outlined.
Extending these to the assumptions pertaining to pulse propagation
produces an assortment of coupled nonlinear Schrödinger equations.
