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 nonbreaking 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.
