Introduction. Free waves: Short wavelengths. Free waves: Long wavelengths. Free waves: Lateral boundary effects. Statistical and probabilistic methods. Wave interactions. Wave-current interactions: Critical layer absorption and stability of parallel flows. The generation and dissipation of waves. References. Author Index. Subject Index
This is a book which will be welcomed not only by researchers and engineers, but also by teachers and students, as it contains the only comprehensive review of the dynamics of ocean waves. Existing books are now either out of date or restricted to specialized aspects of the subject, whereas this book covers all types of ocean waves, ranging from capillary to planetary waves. Because of its completeness of coverage, its use of elementary mathematics and the provision of numerous problems and exercises, the book will be an indispensable text for everyone. It is completed by a very lengthy bibliography which includes many references to the Russian literature.
