Noise in the nonlinear Fourier domain

Nonlinear Fourier transform provides us with the analytical relation between the input and output of the optical fibre link. This is what is required to find the capacity of fibre as the most important communication channel of modern data networks. An important part of this analytical model is the stochastic distribution of the received signal which is corrupted by random noise. In this talk, I will discuss some mathematical tools to explore noise and its representation in the Fourier domain and how we can quantify its impact in the NFT framework.
