The one dimensional cubic half wave equation is a simple example of a fractional NLS equation with vanishing dispersion. Its focusing version admits solitons with arbitrarily small mass. I will explain how these solitons are connected to some integrable system as the velocity tends to the speed of light, and how this connection allows to construct two-soliton solutions displaying some transition to high frequencies.
