Abstract : We construct here new deformations of the AP breather (Akhmediev-Peregrine breather) of order N (or AP N breather) with 2N −2 real parameters. Other families of quasi-rational solutions of the NLS equation are obtained. We evaluate the highest amplitude of the modulus of AP breather of order N ; we give the proof that the highest amplitude of the AP N breather is equal to 2N + 1. We get new formulas for the solutions of the NLS equation, different from these already given in previous works. New solutions for the order 8 and their deformations according to the parameters are explicitly given. We get the triangular configurations as well as isolated rings at the same time. Moreover, the appearance for certain values of the parameters, of new configurations of concentric rings are underscored.
