Here, the wavenumber of the side-bands is taken to be 1, which maximizes the left-hand-side of (47). It can be seen that unstable sidebands grow and then oscillate as they exchange energy with the carrier wave. However, over longer times, both the side-bands and the carrier wave decay due to random scattering. For larger values of 0, monotonic decay due to radiation damping dominates the evolution after a short time. Indeed, for K = 1, Eq. 5. More numerical examples of nonlinear evolution with localization can be found in Mei & Hancock''.
