**Water Waves: The Mathematical Theory With Applications**

by J. J. Stoker

**Publisher**: Interscience Publishers 1957**ISBN/ASIN**: B0000CJV8X**Number of pages**: 609

**Description**:

Offers an integrated account of the mathematical hypothesis of wave motion in liquids with a free surface, subjected to gravitational and other forces. Uses both potential and linear wave equation theories, together with applications such as the Laplace and Fourier transform methods, conformal mapping and complex variable techniques in general or integral equations, methods employing a Green's function.
