Abstract:In this thesis we discuss mathematical aspects of extreme water wave generation in a hydrodynamic laboratory. The original problem comes from the Maritime Research Institute Netherlands (MARIN) to generate large amplitude and non-breaking waves to test ship and offshore construction. We choose the spatial nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equation as a mathematical model for this problem and concentrate on the study of one family of exact solutions of this equation that describes extreme wave events in a wave basin.
