CWR 6026: Nonlinear Waves

Course Description for Nonlinear Waves

CWR6026: Nonlinear Waves
Prerequisite:  CWR 5025
Description: This course will go beyond linear wave theory and investigate the process when two or more waves interact in a nonlinear way. An introduction will be given to stochastic description of ocean waves, wave spectrum, wave statistics, and definition of freak waves. The course will also examine non-linear wave resonance, free and bound waves, models for nonlinear wave evolution, and modulational instability
