Chebyshev spectral methods for two-point boundary value problems describing the processes of counterpropagating optical waves interaction in media with nonlinear refractive index are considered. On an example of linear problem fort the case of the media with periodic modulation of the refractive index, it is shown that the spectral method provide a given accuracy in two-three orders faster in comparison with the spline collocation method of the 5th accuracy order. Moreover, Chebyshev mesh has natural adaptive properties for such kind of the problems. A conservative iterative algorithm for implementation of the nonlinear spectral model is proposed. The proposed iterative method has convergence rate comparable with the Newton's method and has less sensitivity to the initial guess. On the base of the proposed numerical methods the bistability effect in the optical fiber amplifiers with bidirectional pumping is predicted.
