Note on the scattering of water waves by a vertical barrier

  • W. E. Williams (a1)

Introduction. In this note an alternative approach is presented to the problem of the scattering of small amplitude two-dimensional water waves by a fixed barrier, one edge of the barrier lying in the free surface of the water. This problem was first solved by Ursell ((1)) and generalizations of the problem have been considered by John ((2)) and Lewin ((3)).
