Linearised Dam-break Problem, The
David J Needham, S Mcgovern, John Andrew Leach
The monograph addresses a canonical problem in linear water wave theory, through the development-detailed, asymptotic analysis of contour integrals in the complex plane. It is anticipated that the methodology developed in the monograph will have applications to many associated linear wave evolution problems, to which the reader may adapt the approach developed in the monograph. The approach adopted in the monograph is novel, and there are no existing publications for comparison.
