|Title:||Traveling water waves in two and three dimensions|
|Seminar:||CCMA Luncheon Seminar|
|Speaker:||Vishal Vasan, Penn State Mathematics|
|Water waves are a common phenomena but their mathematical description can be quite complicated. In this talk I will present the equations governing the motion of the free surface of an inviscid, irrotational flow over a flat bed. If we limit ourselves to traveling waves we obtain a free boundary-value problem for Laplace's Equation. Finally I will present a method to numerically compute these traveling wave solutions.|
