• Localized structures for $(2+1)$-dimensional Boiti–Leon–Pempinelli equation

It is shown that Painlevé integrability of $(2+1)$-dimensional Boiti–Leon–Pempinelli equation is easy to be verified using the standard Weiss–Tabor–Carnevale (WTC) approach after introducing the Kruskal’s simplification. Furthermore, by employing a singular manifold method based on Painlevé truncation, variable separation solutions are obtained explicitly in terms of two arbitrary functions. The two arbitrary functions provide us a way to study some interesting localized structures. The choice of rational functions leads to the rogue wave structure of Boiti–Leon–Pempinelli equation. In addition, for the other choices, it is observed that two solitons may evolve into breather after interaction. Also, the interaction between two kink compactons is investigated.

• Inclined periodic homoclinic breather and rogue waves for the (1+1)-dimensional Boussinesq equation

A new method, homoclinic (heteroclinic) breather limit method (HBLM), for seeking rogue wave solution to nonlinear evolution equation (NEE) is proposed. (1+1)-dimensional Boussinesq equation is used as an example to illustrate the effectiveness of the suggested method. Rational homoclinic wave solution, a new family of two-wave solution, is obtained by inclined periodic homoclinic breather wave solution and is just a rogue wave solution. This result shows that rogue wave originates by the extreme behaviour of homoclinic breather wave in (1+1)-dimensional nonlinear wave fields.

• Rogue wave solutions of the nonlinear Schrödinger eqution with variable coefficients

In this paper, a unified formula of a series of rogue wave solutions for the standard (1+1)-dimensional nonlinear Schrödinger equation is obtained through exp-function method. Further, by means of an appropriate transformation and previously obtained solutions, rogue wave solutions of the variable coefficient Schrödinger equation are also obtained. Two free functions of time 𝑡 and several arbitrary parameters are involved to generate a large number of wave structures.

• Kink degeneracy and rogue potential solution for the (3+1)-dimensional B-type Kadomtsev--Petviashvili equation

In this paper, we obtained the exact breather-type kink soliton and breather-type periodic soliton solutions for the (3+1)-dimensional B-type Kadomtsev--Petviashvili (BKP) equation using the extended homoclinic test technique. Some new nonlinear phenomena, such as kink and periodic degeneracies, are investigated. Using the homoclinic breather limit method, some new rational breather solutions are found as well. Meanwhile, we also obtained the rational potential solution which is found to be just a rogue wave. These results enrich thevariety of the dynamics of higher-dimensional nonlinear wave field.

• Emergence and space–time structure of lump solution to the (2+1)-dimensional generalized KP equation

A periodic breather-wave solution is obtained using homoclinic test approach and Hirota’s bilinear method with a small perturbation parameter $u_0$ for the (2+1)-dimensional generalized Kadomtsev–Petviashvili equation. Based on the periodic breather-wave, a lump solution is emerged by limit behaviour. Finally, three different forms of the space–time structure of the lump solution are investigated and discussed using the extreme value theory.
