The precise manner in which radiation disperses away from a soliton in an optical fiber is a topic attracting current attention. The purpose of this paper is to emphasize that there exists a well-developed formalism derived from inverse scattering theory, which has ready application to this problem for the case when the radiation in question forms part of the input pulse to the fiber.
