We interpret the forward Maxwell equation with up to third order induced polarizations and get so called nonlinear wave equation in frequency domain (NWEF), which is based on Maxwell wave equation and using slowly varying spectral amplitude approximation. The NWEF is generalized in concept as it directly describes the electric field dynamics rather than the envelope dynamics and because it concludes most current-interested nonlinear processes such as three-wave mixing, four-wave-mixing and material Raman effects. We give two sets of NWEF, one is a 1+1D equation describing the (approximated) planar wave propagation in nonlinear bulk material and the other corresponds to the propagation in a waveguide structure.
