Part of the Applied Mathematical Sciences book series (AMS, volume 43)


We now consider the situation in which the mean depth h0 Of the fluid is comparable with the amplitude of the surface waves but small compared with the lateral scale or wavelength λ of the disturbance. The same assumption was used in discussing Tidal Waves, but in this case we shall not assume that the disturbance is small, and the problem will be essentially nonlinear.
