A Hamiltonian formulation of water waves with constant vorticity
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
We show that the governing equations for two-dimensional water waves with constant vorticity can be formulated as a canonical Hamiltonian system, in which one of the canonical variables is the surface elevation. This generalizes the well-known formulation due to Zakharov  in the irrotational case.
