Using experimental data from three different rogue wave supporting systems, determinism, and predictability of the underlying dynamics are evaluated with methods of nonlinear time series analysis. We included original records from the Draupner platform in the North Sea as well as time series from two optical systems in our analysis. One of the latter was measured in the infrared tail of optical fiber supercontinua, the other in the fluence profiles of multifilaments. All three data sets exhibit…

Nonlinear time series analysis: towards an effective forecast of rogue waves

Rogue waves are extremely large waves that exceed any expectation based on long-term observation and Gaussian statistics. Ocean rogue waves exceed the significant wave height in the ocean by a factor

Capturing rogue waves by multi-point statistics

As an example of a complex system with extreme events, we investigate ocean wave states exhibiting rogue waves. We present a statistical method of data analysis based on multi-point statistics which

Rogue waves and entropy consumption

Based on data from the Sea of Japan and the North Sea the occurrence of rogue waves is analyzed by a scale-dependent stochastic approach, which interlinks fluctuations of waves for different

Rogue waves and entropy consumption: a key to full sta- tistical description of rare events in non-linear determin- istic systems?

We present evidence that extreme events result from processes through a hierarchy of time scales that consume entropy from the surroundings. In particular, when applied to seasurface heights we are

Ocean rogue waves and their phase space dynamics in the limit of a linear interference model

Time series analysis as well as the appearance of particular focusing wind conditions may enable an effective forecast of such rogue-wave prone situations, and extracting the dimension from ocean time series allows much more specific estimation of the rogue wave probability.

Real world ocean rogue waves explained without the modulational instability

This work analyzes several sets of field data in various European locations with various tools, and finds that the main generation mechanism for rogue waves is the constructive interference of elementary waves enhanced by second-order bound nonlinearities and not the modulational instability.

Random walks across the sea: the origin of rogue waves?

Ocean rogue waves are large and suddenly appearing surface gravity waves, which may cause severe damage to ships and other maritime structures. Despite years of research, the exact origin of rogue

Linear and Nonlinear Rogue Waves in Optical Systems

This thesis describes the study of several different classes of linear and nonlinear effects in optics that generatelarge amplitude extreme events with properties analogous to the destructive “rogue

Predictability of the appearance of anomalous waves at sufficiently small Benjamin–Feir indices

The numerical simulation of the nonlinear dynamics of random sea waves at sufficiently small Benjamin–Feir indices and its comparison with the linear dynamics (at the coincidence of spatial Fourier

Optical polarization rogue waves and their identifications

Optical rogue waves are a class of pulses with extremely large amplitudes, whose probability of occurrence unexpectedly deviates from Gaussian-law statistics. To date, the mechanisms of rogue wave



Optical rogue waves

This work reports the observation of rogue waves in an optical system, based on a microstructured optical fibre, near the threshold of soliton-fission supercontinuum generation—a noise-sensitive nonlinear process in which extremely broadband radiation is generated from a narrowband input.

Predictability horizon of oceanic rogue waves

Prediction is a central goal and a yet‐unresolved challenge in the investigation of oceanic rogue waves. Here we define a horizon of predictability for oceanic rogue waves and derive, via extensive

Are rogue waves beyond conventional predictions ?

There is no doubt that waves of unexpected severity happen at sea. Many authors have developed models that would explain the supposed abnormally high numbers of such occurrences, most of them based

The analysis of observed chaotic data in physical systems

Chaotic time series data are observed routinely in experiments on physical systems and in observations in the field. The authors review developments in the extraction of information of physical

Experiments on wind-perturbed rogue wave hydrodynamics using the Peregrine breather model

Being considered as a prototype for description of oceanic rogue waves, the Peregrine breather solution of the nonlinear Schrodinger equation has been recently observed and intensely investigated

Correlation Dimension and Its Temporal Variations in Geomagnetic Total Field During Storms

Correlation-dimension analysis is often used to quantify the dynamics of the obscure attractor from the measured time series. Specifically, the method of sliding-window correlation-dimension is used
