Solitons are central objects of
nonlinear science, and the well-
known envelope solitons of the nonlinear
Schrödinger equation (NLSE) have been
extensively studied in many different
physical systems. In addition to envelope
solitons that propagate unchanged over
long distances, mathematical analysis
of the NLSE reveals many other classes
of localized solutions. There has been
particular interest in the properties of one
particular structure first predicted to exist
over 25 years ago, known as the Peregrine
soliton.1 In contrast to other solitons, the
Peregrine soliton is localized in both time
