Nonlinear water waves : Cetraro, Italy 2013 / [edited by] Adrian Constantin...[et al.].

By: International Mathematical Summer Centre.
Contributor(s): Constantin, Adrian [editor] | Escher, Joachim [editor] | Johnson, Robin Stanley [editor] | Villari, Gabriele [editor].
Material type: TextTextSeries: Lecture notes in mathematics ; 2158; CIME Foundation subseries.Publisher: New York, NY : Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2016Description: vii, 228 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm.ISBN: 9783319314617.Subject(s): Water waves -- Mathematical models -- CongressesDDC classification: 531.1133
Contents:
Exact travelling periodic water waves in two-dimensional irrotational flows / Adrian Constantin -- Breaking water waves / Joachim Escher -- Asymptotic methods for weakly nonlinear and other water waves / Robin Stanley Johnson -- A survival kit in phase plane analysis: some basic models and problems / Gabriele Villari.
Summary: This volume brings together four lecture courses on modern aspects of water waves. The intention, through the lectures, is to present quite a range of mathematical ideas, primarily to show what is possible and what, currently, is of particular interest. Water waves of large amplitude can only be fully understood in terms of nonlinear effects, linear theory being not adequate for their description. Taking advantage of insights from physical observation, experimental evidence and numerical simulations, classical and modern mathematical approaches can be used to gain insight into their dynamics. The book presents several avenues and offers a wide range of material of current interest. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the subject, the book should be of interest to mathematicians (pure and applied), physicists and engineers. The lectures provide a useful source for those who want to begin to investigate how mathematics can be used to improve our understanding of water wave phenomena. In addition, some of the material can be used by those who are already familiar with one branch of the study of water waves, to learn more about other areas. The lectures cover background material as well as aspects that represent the state-of-the-art. We therefore commend this collection of lectures to both the novice and the expert.
