A Robust Inverse Scattering Transform for Arbitrary Spectral Singularities

Development of a robust inverse scattering transform to treat arbitrary spectral singularities, in particular including rogue wave solutions of nonlinear integrable dispersive PDEs.

Numerical Inverse Scattering Transforms

Making solutions of integrable nonlinear dispersive wave equations computationally available to the nonlinear waves community using their Riemann-Hilbert problem representations via developing numerical inverse scattering transform tools. Riemann-Hilbert problems play the role of Fourier-type integral representations we have for solutions of linear problems.

Solitary Wave Resolution: Long-Time Asymptotics for Near-Integrable Systems

Long-time asymptotics for perturbations of integrable wave models that admit solitary wave solutions.

Stability Properties of Rogue Waves and Asymptotics for Large Coherent Structures

Analysis and prediction of rogue waves in context of a Cauchy initial value problem, asymptotic properties of large rogue waves and other large coherent structures such as ‘high-order-pole’ solitons appearing in nonlinear integrable dispersive PDEs.
