Title:An introduction to Rogue waves, dissipation, and downshifting
Seminar:CCMA Luncheon Seminar
Speaker:Diane Henderson, Penn State University
It will be an introduction to the afternoon talk, the abstract of which is: The physical and statistical properties of rogue waves in deep water are investigated using the focusing Nonlinear Schr\"odinger equation and some of its higher order generalizations. Numerical investigations and analytical arguments based on the inverse spectral theory of the underlying integrable model, perturbation analysis, and statistical methods provide a coherent picture of rogue waves associated with nonlinear focusing events. Damping plays an important role in stability and downshifting of waves. The effects of linear and nonlinear damping on the development of rogue waves and the interaction between rogue waves and downshifting are also examined.
