Numerical simulations of the recently derived fully nonlinear equations of motion for long-crested water waves [V. P. Ruban, Phys. Rev. E 71, 055303(R) (2005)] with quasirandom initial conditions are reported, which show the spontaneous formation of a single extreme wave on deep water. This rogue wave behaves in an oscillating manner and exists for a(More)
In this work we present a further analytical development and a numerical implementation of the recently suggested theoretical model for highly nonlinear potential long-crested water waves, where weak three-dimensional effects are included as small corrections to exact two-dimensional equations written in the conformal variables [V. P. Ruban, Phys. Rev. E(More)
A specific, genuinely three-dimensional mechanism of rogue wave formation, in a late stage of the modulational instability of a perturbed Stokes deep-water wave, is recognized through numerical experiments. The simulations are based on fully nonlinear equations describing weakly three-dimensional potential flows of an ideal fluid with a free surface in(More)

Two-dimensional free-surface potential flows of an ideal fluid over a strongly inhomogeneous bottom are investigated with the help of conformal mappings. Weakly nonlinear and exact nonlinear equations of motion are derived by the variational method for an arbitrary seabed shape parametrized by an analytical function. As applications of this theory, the band(More)

A unique description for highly nonlinear potential water waves is suggested, where weak three-dimensional effects are included as small corrections to exact two-dimensional equations written in conformal variables. Contrary to the traditional approach, a small parameter in this theory is not a surface slope, but it is the ratio of a typical wavelength to a(More)

Formation of giant waves in sea states with two spectral maxima centered at close wave vectors k_{0}+/-Deltak/2 in the Fourier plane is numerically simulated using the fully nonlinear model for long-crested water waves [V. P. Ruban, Phys. Rev. E 71, 055303(R) (2005)]. Depending on an angle theta between the vectors k_{0} and Deltak , which determines a(More)

Finite-amplitude gravity water waves in Bragg resonance with a periodic one-dimensional topography are studied numerically using exact equations of motion for ideal potential free-surface flows. Spontaneous formation of highly nonlinear localized structures is observed in the numerical experiments. These coherent structures consisting of several nearly(More)
Models of inviscid incompressible fluid are considered, with the kinetic energy (i.e., the Lagrangian functional) taking the form L approximately integral k(alpha)/vk/2dk in 3D Fourier representation, where alpha is a constant, 0<alpha<1. Unlike the case alpha=0 (the usual Eulerian hydrodynamics), a finite value of alpha results in a finite energy for a(More)
