Extreme events in nonlinear wave interactions (dragon king)

Extreme events are by definition rare and exhibit unusual values of relevant observables. In literature, it is possible to find many studies about the predictability and suppression of extreme events.

In this work, Antonio Marcos Batista will show the existence of dragon-kings extreme events in nonlinear three-wave interactions. Dragon-king extreme events, identified by phase transitions, tipping points and catastrophes, affects fluctuating systems. Antonia will show that these events can be avoided by adding a perturbing small amplitude wave to the system.
