This Water Monograph shows the benefit of using relaxed variational methods for the water waves problem. It illustrates the advantage of using a variational principle involving as many dependent variables as possible. Its primary purpose is to provide a generalized framework for deriving model equations for water waves. This methodology is elucidated through a range of examples, a number of which are entirely novel.
This IAHR Water Monograph provides valuable guidance for researchers, hydraulic modellers, and engineers engaged in studying and working with water waves.
