Abstract: The theory of optical dispersive shocks generated in propagation of light beams through photore- fractive media is developed. Full one-dimensional analytical theory based on the Whitham modu- lation approach is given for the simplest case of sharp step-like initial discontinuity in a beam with one-dimensional strip-like geometry. This approach is con¯rmed by numerical simulations which are extended also to beams with cylindrical symmetry. The theory explains recent experiments where such dispersive shock waves have been observed.
