Water waves and free-surface flows

Listed as Applied Mathematics Topic E in the Course Planner.

Go to this course in the University Course Planner.

Description

Surface water waves occur in many physical situations that are familiar to most people. They include waves on the surface of an ocean, tsunamis, and waves generated by shipping vessels. The interface or boundary between the water and air is called the free-surface. During this course, students will encounter a variety of mathematical methods used to determine the shape of the free-surface, for linear and nonlinear water wave problems. This will enable us to study the fundamental properties of water wave propagation.
