A new model for large amplitude long internal waves
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
We derive a new model for the description of large amplitude internal waves in a two-fluid system. The displacement of the interface between the two fluids is assumed to be of small slope, but no smallness assumption is made on the wave amplitude. The derivation of the model is based on the perturbation theory for Hamiltonian systems. In the case of a single fluid layer, the model reduces to the classical shallow water regime for surface water waves. (C) 2004 Academie des sciences. Published by Elsevier SAS. All rights reserved.
