Offers an integrated account of the mathematical hypothesis of wave motion in liquids with a free surface, subjected to gravitational and other forces. Uses both potential and linear wave equation theories, together with applications.
The wave is a physical phenomenon that is found in a variety of contexts. The purpose of this text is to describe the kinematics of waves, i.e., to provide tools for describing the form and motion of all waves irrespective of their mechanisms.
