Editorial Reviews

Review

"...reasonably priced, and it is one of the best books available on the subject. With suitable supplements by the instructor, it could serve as a very readable text for an interesting course on the modern theory of water waves." Mathematical Reviews

Book Description

The theory of water waves has been a source of intriguing and oftendifficult mathematical problems for at least 150 years. This text briefly discusses fluid mechanics. It then considers the classical problems in linear and non-linear water-wave theory, as well as more modern aspects -- problems that give rise to soliton-type equations. Lastly it examines the effects of viscosity. All the mathematical developments are presented in a straightforward manner. Exercises, further reading, and historical notes make this an ideal text for graduate students.

This book makes the mathematical methods (perturbations, asymptotics, characteristics, potential flow, etc) accessible to a non-mathematician. Since I'm not a mathematician, I like this.

Great book.

This book is suitable for understanding the fundamental theory of shallow water waves. The presentation is easy to follow. It helps me with my research in fluid dynamics since it provides interesting topics in shallow water waves. I like this book.
