Rogue waves: An introduction
I overview some theoretical work in the area of rogue waves, also termed as freak waves or high-amplitudes waves. These special wave structures emerge in a broad class of physical settings: hydrodynamics, optics and photonics, and Bose-Einstein condensates. The connection with earlier work on families of solitons in dispersive optic fibers is also pointed out [see, D. Mihalache and N. C. Panoiu, Analytic method for solving the nonlinear Schroedinger equation describing pulse propagation in dispersive optic fibres, J. Phys. A: Math. Gen. 26, 2679 (1993)].
