TL;DR: In this article, a number of ases in which these equations reduce to a one dimensional nonlinear Schrodinger (NLS) equation are enumerated, and several analytical solutions of NLS equations are presented, with discussion of their implications for describing the propagation of water waves.

Abstract: Equations governing modulations of weakly nonlinear water waves are described. The modulations are coupled with wave-induced mean flows except in the case of water deeper than the modulation length scale. Equations suitable for water depths of the order the modulation length scale are deduced from those derived by Davey and Stewartson [5] and Dysthe [6]. A number of ases in which these equations reduce to a one dimensional nonlinear Schrodinger (NLS) equation are enumerated.Several analytical solutions of NLS equations are presented, with discussion of some of their implications for describing the propagation of water waves. Some of the solutions have not been presented in detail, or in convenient form before. One is new, a “rational” solution describing an “amplitude peak” which is isolated in space-time. Ma's [13] soli ton is particularly relevant to the recurrence of uniform wave trains in the experiment of Lake et al.[10].In further discussion it is pointed out that although water waves are unstable to three-dimensional disturbances, an effective description of weakly nonlinear two-dimensional waves would be a useful step towards describing ocean wave propagation.

TL;DR: In this article, it was shown that invexity can be substituted for convexity in the saddle point problem and in the Slater constraint qualification for both constrained and unconstrained problems.

Abstract: Recently it was shown that many results in Mathematical Programming involving convex functions actually hold for a wider class of functions, called invex. Here a simple characterization of invexity is given for both constrained and unconstrained problems. The relationship between invexity and other generalizations of convexity is illustrated. Finally, it is shown that invexity can be substituted for convexity in the saddle point problem and in the Slater constraint qualification.

TL;DR: In this article, a second-order Runge-Kutta iterative scheme was proposed for numerical solution of Ito stochastic differential equations by means of a secondorder runge-kutta algorithm rather than the less efficient Euler iterative algorithm.

Abstract: A method is proposed for the numerical solution of Ito stochastic differential equations by means of a second-order Runge–Kutta iterative scheme rather than the less efficient Euler iterative scheme. It requires the Runge–Kutta iterative scheme to be applied to a different stochastic differential equation obtained by subtraction of a correction term from the given one.

TL;DR: In this paper, a relaxation of the sufficient optimality conditiond duality result for the generalised convex programming problem is proposed. But the relaxation is not applicable to nonlinear multi-objective fractional programming problems.

TL;DR: In this article, a simple elliptic model is developed for the spread of a fire front through grassland, which is used to predict theoretical fire fronts, which agree closely with those obtained in practice.
