In this paper, a stochastic term is added to the classical generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equation to describe the noise generated when light pulses propagate in a fiber. It has been shown that the generated supercontinuum light source fluctuates up to 50% of its output temporal intensity profile due to noises of different sources. The simulation method devised has been applied to the propagation of finite energy Airy pulse in a photonic crystal fiber and to study the generated noise.
