A detailed exposition is presented that explains how magnetooptics and nonlinearity can be combined to give a fascinating degree of control within complex metamaterial waveguide structures. Both strongly and weakly nonlinear waves will be discussed, especially spatial and temporal soliton behaviour. Complex structures will include special waveguides that permit the manipulation of wavepackets amongst which will be speculation about the trapping of rainbows.
