Water Waves with Time-Dependent and Deformable Angled Crests (or Corners)

PDE and Applied Math Seminar

Speaker: Steve Shkoller
Location: 1147 MSB
Start time: Fri, May 31 2019, 3:10PM

I will describe a new set of estimates for the 2d water waves problem, in which the free surface has an angled crest (or corner) with a time-dependent angle that changes with the evolution of the water wave, and with a corner vertex that can move in all directions. There are no symmetry constraints on the crest, and the fluid can have bulk vorticity. This is joint work with D. Coutand.
