Abstract

Rogue waves in optical fibers can be mathematically described by the nonlinear Schrödinger equation and its extensions that take into account third-order dispersion, self-steepening, and self-frequency shift. These equations are integrable in special cases such as the Sasa–Satsuma or the Hirota equations. However, approximate polynomial solutions can also be obtained in cases beyond these integrable ones. We present these solutions and confirm their validity using numerical simulations.
