Title: Electromagnetic shock wave in nonlinear vacuum: exact solution
Keywords: electromagnetic shock wave, nonlinear vacuum, electron–positron nonlinear polarization, nonlinear wave vector equations, pseudospherical coordinate system, analytical solution

Abstract: An analytical approach to the theory of electromagnetic waves in nonlinear vacuum is developed. The evolution of the pulse is governed by a system of nonlinear wave vector equations. An exact solution with its own angular momentum in the form of a shock wave is obtained.
