Full nonlinear equations for one-dimensional potential surface waves were used for investigation of the evolution of an initially homogeneous train of exact Stokes waves with steepness AK=0.01–0.42. The numerical algorithm for the integration of nonstationary equations and the calculation of exact Stokes waves is described. Since the instability of the exact Stokes waves develops slowly, a random small-amplitude noise was introduced in initial conditions. The development of instability occurs… Expand
