Lectures on the theory of water waves [EBook] / edited by Thomas J. Bridges (University of Surrey), Mark D. Groves (Universität des Saarlandes, Saarbrücken, Germany) and David P. Nicholls (University of Illinois, Chicago).
Lectures on the theory of water waves [EBook] / edited by Thomas J. Bridges (University of Surrey), Mark D. Groves (Universität des Saarlandes, Saarbrücken, Germany) and David P. Nicholls (University of Illinois, Chicago).
In the summer of 2014 leading experts in the theory of water waves gathered at the Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Cambridge for four weeks of research interaction. A crosssection of those experts was invited to give introductorylevel talks on active topics. This book is a compilatio...
