In the quest to understand what happens to the stability as the strength of the vorticity increases, it’s important to predict precisely where the first instability will arise (in terms of the Floquet parameter .
When the constant vorticity is strong enough to induce a region of lower pressure under the crest, is the wave stable?
Today, I attended a session organized by Christian Kharif on water-waves. Three of the speakers were colleagues: Vishal, Vera, and Chris. While quite a few topics were discuss, I personally found the conversations that happened between talks the most useful. I discussed various projects with various permutations of people. The following contains a brief summary of some of the topics/projects/questions discussed.
