    Sure most of us have heard or read about a recent rogue ocean wave that struck a cruise ship broadside causing severe damage and fatally wounding a passenger. My thought was that if everything is a wave (read that somewhere) then could rogue waves appear at the quantum level. (i.e. light wave). If so, do they have noticeable affects and what are they?

    Did a little research and found the term Soliton. Here’s what Wiki says :

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soliton

    Is the use of this term meant for a particle wave(Consisting of particles)?

    All that belongs to human understanding, in this deep ignorance and obscurity, is to be skeptical, or at least cautious; and not to admit of any hypothesis, whatsoever; much less, of any which is supported by no appearance of probability...Hume

    No. Soliton waves are produced by a non-linear wave equation. Quantum waves associated with classical particle motion are the result of the group velocity associated with the dispersion that results from the de Broglie relation.




    There are no paradoxes in relativity, just people's misunderstandings of it.

    Have read that every wave has a constant speed dependent upon medium…..T of F? If true would that mean the universe contains a lot of waves each moving at their own constant velocity. While all these waves are jostling around do they interfere with one another? Could one wave affect another’s velocity, be attracted to or even repel other waves? I figure at one time there weren’t a lot of different waves about but with each new element or combinations of elements was a new wave created with its own constant velocity? My own personal wave for instance, should I be one, a single wave or a collection of waves that appear as a single wave?
