Solitary gravity-capillary and flexural-gravity waves in two and three dimensions of space are reviewed in this paper. Numerical methods used to compute the solitary waves are described in detail and typical solutions found over the years are presented. Similarities and differences between the solutions for the two physical problems are discussed.
