Overhanging interfacial gravity waves of large amplitude

  • D. I. Meiron (a1) and P. G. Saffman (a1)

Methods to investigate the existence of overhanging gravity waves of permanent form at the interface between two uniform fluids of different density are discussed. Numerical results which demonstrate their existence are presented.
