Existence and Computation of Traveling Water Waves


The equations of motion for ideal, free-surface fluid flows were written down more than 150 years ago and have challenged theoreticians and experimentalists ever since. In this talk we will discuss these equations and some of the basic theoretical and numerical results for a certain class of solutions, the traveling wave solutions.
