We investigate the nonlinear stage of the modulational (or Benjamin–Feir) instability by characterizing the initial value problem for the focusing nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equation with nonzero boundary conditions (NZBC) at infinity. We do so using the recently formulated inverse scattering transform (IST) for this problem. While the linearization of the(More)
