Organizing Committee

Water wave problems often require specific computational tools, and computations often inform the search for theoretical results. This workshop will bring both of these aspects together. Topics to be discussed include methods and results for steady and unsteady waves, including boundary integral, conformal maps and Euler truncations, with applications to capillary, gravity, flexural, vortical, electro-hydrodynamic, and geophysical waves. Computational questions in water waves have inspired research for over 60 years. In particular, the conference will celebrate the work of Jean-Marc Vanden-Broeck, who has been making important contributions in the field since the 1970s.
