|Title:||Some problems in the theory of surface water waves|
|Seminar:||SIAM Student Chapter Seminar|
|Speaker:||Vishal Vasan, Penn State University, Department of Mathematics|
|I will give a brief introduction to the equations that govern surface gravity waves. These equations are considered a good model for ocean waves, tsunamis and coastal phenomena in certain physical regimes. Next I will present some problems of interest regarding water waves including traditional well-posed problems as well as ill-posed ones. These questions arise from theoretical as well as applied considerations.|
