@article{Ruban2016PredictabilityOT, title={Predictability of the appearance of anomalous waves at sufficiently small Benjamin–Feir indices}, author={Victor P. Ruban}, journal={JETP Letters}, year={2016}, volume={103}, pages={568-572} }

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 harmonics near a spectral peak at a certain time tp) indicate that the appearance of a rogue wave can be predicted in advance. If the linear approximation shows the presence of a sufficiently extensive and/or high group of waves in the near future after tp, an anomalous wave is almost necessarily…
