The objective of this book is to introduce new researchers to the rich dynamical system of water waves, and to show how (some) abstract mathematical concepts can be applied fruitfully in a practical physical problem and to make the connection between theory and experiment. It provides a coherent set of lectures on the current status of water wave theory, including identification of some open problems.


Approximate Periodic Solutions for the Rapidly Rotating Shallow-Water Equations; Practical Wind Wave Forecasting; A Semi Linear Wave Equation with Smooth Data and No Resonance Having No Continuous Solution; Spectral Stability of Solitary Waves on Water of Finite Depth; Tsunami Propagation from a Finite Source; Lagrangian Coherent Structures and Lagrangian Data Assimilation of Ocean Systems; Mathematical Methods for Coupled Nonlinear PDEs; Study of Two-Dimensional Wave Patterns; Well Posedness of Water Waves; Gravity Induced Dispersion for Nearly Flat Vortex Sheets; An Experimental Study of the Correlation Between Wave-Nonlinearity and Low Frequency Waves in Shoaling Water; A Numerical Method for a Maximum Entropy Problem; Wave Modulated Turbulent Fields at the Ocean Surface and Related Air-Sea Fluxes; Demonstration Experiments in the NSF-CBMS Regional Conference on Water Waves;
