Organizing Committee
Abstract

The theory of water waves has been at the forefront of mathematics for over two centuries. In recent years there has been an explosion of interest in the subject. This workshop will bring together researchers contributing to all aspects of water waves: experiments, computation and analysis. Currently active topics in water waves include the effects of viscosity, surface tension, vorticity, surface wind and bottom topography on both time-dependent and steady waves. However, the workshop will range well beyond these topics.
