SUMMARY:Math Seminar Series
DESCRIPTION:
Colloquium\n
\n
Walter Strauss, Brown University,
will be speaking.\n
\n
The topic is titled "Steady
Water Waves."\n
\n
Contact: Aaron D Levin
for more information.\n
\n
The mathematical study
of water waves began with the derivation
of the basic mathematical equations of any fluid
by Euler in 1752. Later, water waves, which
have a free boundary at the air interface,
played a central role in the work of Poisson,
Cauchy, Stokes, Levi-Civita and many others.
In the last quarter century it has become a
particularly active mathematical research area.
I will limit my discussion to classical 2D
traveling water waves with vorticity. By means
of local and global bifurcation theory using
topological degree, we now know that there
exist many such waves. They are exact smooth
solutions of the Euler equations with the physical
boundary conditions. Numerical computations
provide insight into their properties.\n\n
