This document provides supplementary information to "Dual polarization nonlinear Fourier transform-based optical communication system," https://doi.org/10.1364/optica.5.000263. We present the mathematical derivation of the forward-backward trapezoidal algorithm for the Manakov system, which allows the efficient computation of the scattering data from the time domain dual polarization signal. We furthermore describe the optimization procedure followed
in order to choose the scattering coefficients constellations for the transmission focusing on the approach we applied to minimize the peak-to-average power ratio of the transmitted waveform. Finally we present a brief analysis of the noise affecting the eigenvalue and the scattering coefficients.
