Boundary Integral Methods
In the numerical simulation of free-surface flows a considerable simplification is possible in the opposite limits of very weak or very strong viscous effects. This chapter focuses for the most part on the former case and provides an overview of several boundary integral methods that have been developed to handle it. The last section gives a brief description of the basis for boundary integral methods suitable for the Stokes equations.
