Modeling Rogue Waves with the Kadomtsev-Petviashvili Equation

  • Author / Creator
    Wanye, Randy Kanyiri
  • In this thesis, we will study singular solutions of the Kadomtsev-Petviashvili equation (u_t+6uu_x+u_xxx)_x+3α^2 u_yy=0, α^2=±1 that will help improve our understanding and if possible give indicators to the occurrence of rogue waves. We will only study the nonlinear interaction of two such solutions.
