Theory and Applications of Ocean Surface Waves, Part 1 Linear Aspects by Chiang C. Mei and Michael Stiassnie presents theoretical matters on ocean wave dynamics with fundamental rules and purposes in coastal and offshore engineering in addition to coastal oceanography. Advanced analytical and numerical techniques are utilized, similar to singular perturbations.
On this book, three chapters on recent developments have been added. The primary is on multiple scattering by periodic or random bathymetry. The second is on Zakharov’s principle of nonlinear wave fields with broad spectra. The third is an extensive discussion of powerful numerical strategies for extremely nonlinear waves.
Other new topics embrace infragravity waves, upstream solitons, Venice storm gates, etc. In addition, there are a lot of new exercises. This book will likely be invaluable for graduate students and researchers in coastal and ocean engineering, geophysical fluid dynamicists excited about water waves, and theoretical scientists and applied mathematicians wishing to develop new methods for challenging problems or to apply techniques existing elsewhere.
General, Theory and Applications of Ocean Surface Waves remains a major resource for graduate students in ocean engineering and utilized mathematics. The brand new material that has been added is definitely appropriate. A lot of the introductory material is well offered, and adopted by many specific examples, often with full mathematical detail.
