Nonlinear behavior of electromagnetic surface waves propagating along a tangentially magnetized ferrite slab is investigated. The nonlinear Schrodinger equation (NLSE) which describes the temporal evolution of the electromagnetic wave pulses has been derived directly from the Maxwell equations and the equation of precessional motion for the magnetization in the ferrite slab with the aid of the reductive perturbation method without magnetostatic approximation. Based on the formula derived, we have numerically evaluated the frequency-dependence of the nonlinear coefficient in the NLSE for both a magnetostatic surface wave mode and a dynamic mode. As a result, we have confirmed the possibility of the propagation of solitons in the waveguide.
