Dynamical theory of soliton excitation in one dimensional antiferromagnet (AFM) is studied by a revised Hamiltonian in which biquadratic interaction is taken into account in addition to the uniaxial anisotropy and exchange energy. By using Holstein-Primakoff transformation, the coherent state ansatz and the time-dependent variational principle, we obtain a set of two coupled nonlinear partial differential equations that governs the dynamics of the system. Sine-cosine function method is used to study the complete nonlinear soliton excitation and the effect of inhomogeneity in the system. The presence of inhomogeneity is found to cause a disorder in the AFM system. Finally, the evolution of Modulational Instability (MI) is analyzed in the presence of small perturbations.
