A note on surface profiles for symmetric gravity waves with vorticity

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We consider a nontrivial symmetric periodic gravity wave on a current with nondecreasing vorticity. It is shown that if the surface profile is monotone between trough and crest, it is in fact strictly monotone. The result is valid for both finite and infinite depth.
