Abstract
This chapter reviews properties of lossy light bullets (LLBs) and their relevance in experiments. It introduces LLBs as localized and stationary solutions of the two- or three-dimensional nonlinear Schrödinger equation (NLSE) with self-focusing nonlinearity and nonlinear losses. The chapter then describes their rather complex structure, formed by a narrow peak, surrounded by a dissipative shell and an energy reservoir. In the LLB with maximum intensity and maximum losses supported by the medium, the dissipative shell extends infinitely far from the bullet center. The propagation properties of the physically realizable, finite-energy versions of LLBs are then studied. The chapter describes the self-reconstruction property of LLBs after obstacles. Special attention is paid to the difficult question of the stability of LLBs.
