Abstract:
As is wellknown, underwater ridges and
submerged horizontal cylinders can serve as waveguides for surface water waves.
For large values of the wavenumber in the direction of the ridge, there is only
one trapped wave (this was proved in Bonnet & Joly (1993, SIAM J. Appl. Math.
53, pp 15071550)).
We construct the asymptotics of these trapped waves and their frequencies at
high frequency by means of reducing the initial problem to a pair of boundary
integral equations and then by applying the method of Zhevandrov & Merzon (2003,
AMS Transl. (2) 208, pp 235284), in order to solve
them.
