Abstract

In this paper, we show how the spectral formulation of Baker, Meiron and Orszag can be used to solve for waves on water of infinite depth confined between two flat, vertical walls, and also how it can be modified to take into account water of finite depth with a spatially varying bottom. In each case, we use Chebyshev polynomials as the basis of our representation of the solution and filtering to remove spurious high-frequency modes. We show that spectral accuracy can be achieved until wave breaking, plunging or wall impingment occurs in two model problems.
