Title:  Numerical Methods for the 1D and 2D Linearized Water Wave Equations

Abstract:   The linearized water wave equation (WWE) model incompressible, irrotational, inviscid free surface flows in deep water. For this talk, we will look at the WWE in both one and two space dimensions and consider numerical solutions for a fractional PDE arising as a nonreflecting boundary condition to the WWE. Convergence and stability for the numerical schemes will be discussed and movies of the numerical simulations will be shown.
