Abstract

The specific role of nonlinearity in wave train stochastization is considered using the linear and nonlinear Schrödinger equations. It is shown that in some cases of the chaotic motion of deterministic wave fields nonlinearity may be responsible not for mixing but for the "inverse" effects that stabilize the wave train and prevent its spreading.
