This book is an expanded version of The Applied Dynamics of Ocean Surface Waves. It presents theoretical topics on ocean wave dynamics, including basic principles and applications in coastal and offshore engineering as well as coastal oceanography. Advanced analytical and numerical techniques are applied, such as singular perturbations. In this expanded edition, two chapters on recent developments have been added: one is on multiple scattering by periodic or random bathymetry, and the other is on Zakharov's theory of broad spectrum wave fields. New sections include topics on infragravity waves, upstream solitons, Venice storm gates, etc. In addition, there are many new exercises. Theory and Applications of Ocean Surface Waves will be invaluable for graduate students and researchers in coastal and ocean engineering, geophysical fluid dynamicists interested in water waves, and theoretical scientists and applied mathematicians wishing to develop new techniques for challenging problems or to apply techniques existing elsewhere.

"Overall, the book remains a major resource for graduate students in ocean engineering and applied mathematics. The new material that has been added is certainly appropriate."Mathematical Reviews"Much of the introductory material is well presented, and followed by many specific examples, often with full mathematical detail ... These books can certainly benefit graduate students and researchers, and Part 2 is a worthwhile improvement over the earlier editions."Journal of Fluid Mechanics
