In this work we present an application of a theory of vessels to a solution of the evolutionary nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equation. The classes of functions for which the initial value problem is solvable rely on the existence of an analogue of the inverse scattering theory for the usual NLS equation. This approach is similar to the classical approach of Zakharov-Shabath for solving evolutionary NLS equation but has an advantage of simpler formulas and new techniques and notions to understand the solutions.
