Variational formulations for steady water waves with vorticity

  • ADRIAN CONSTANTIN (a1), DAVID SATTINGER (a2) and WALTER STRAUSS (a3)
Abstract

For free-surface water flows with a vorticity that is monotone with depth, we show that any critical point of a functional representing the total energy of the flow adjusted with a measure of the vorticity, subject to the constraints of fixed mass and horizontal momentum, is a steady water wave.
