This book is a self-contained introduction to the theory of periodic, progressive, permanent waves on the surface of incompressible inviscid fluid. The problem of permanent water-waves has attracted a large number of physicists and mathematicians since Stokes' pioneering papers appeared in and The refraction of internal solitary waves can be due to variations in water depth, nonlinearity, stratification, or shear. This paper addresses the effects of the first two of these effects. Part I of this paper investigated how the amplitude and phase speed of an interfacial solitary wave varied as the wave propagated across a one-dimensional. 1. Introduction [2] Numerous investigations have been conducted to obtain satisfactory theoretical solutions for internal waves in several types of fluid systems having variable bottom geometries. Stokes was the first to develop the theory of internal waves propagating along a boundary between two layers of infinite thickness. Mathematical treatment of the problem is seen in the literature of.

Amazing Solitary Waves: The uniform injection of energy into water can also excite a solitary wave. These are long lived localized disturbances. In this movie you will see examples of .

Considered here are systems of partial differential equations arising in internal wave theory. The systems are asymptotic models describing the two-way propagation of long-crested interfacial waves in the Benjamin-Ono and the Intermediate Long-Wave regimes. Of particular interest will be solitary-wave solutions of these systems. stratiﬁcation; solitary waves 1 Introduction Global theory of interfacial solitary waves in a two-layer ﬂuid has been developed by Amick & Turner (). Their analytical results predict, in particular, the broadening of solitary waves when the wave speed attains the propagation speed of internal bore. Smooth bore is a steady.

In the case of two-dimensional interfacial deflections, traveling waves of permanent form are constructed and it is shown that solitary waves are possible for a range of physical parameters. All solitary waves are expressed implicitly in terms of incomplete elliptic integrals of the third kind. solitary waves described by (1) is slightly higher. According to Russell’s empirical formula the speed equals q g(h+ k);where kis the height of the peak of the solitary wave above the surface of undisturbed water. As Bullough () has shown, Russell’s approximate speed and the true speed of solitary waves only di er by a term of O(k 2=h).

The evolution of fluid interfaces in parallel flow in Hele-Shaw cells is studied theoretically and experimentally in the limit of large capillary number. It is shown that such interfaces support wave motion, the amplitude of which for long waves is governed by a set of Korteweg--de Vries and Airy equations.
