Computation of 3D standing water waves

3d-swsThe paper “Computation of three-dimensional standing water waves“, co-authored by Chris Rycroft and Jon Wilkening, has been published in the Journal of Computational Physics. Using a finite-element method, with fourth-order elements, that are curved to match the free surface, the paper computes time-dependent spatially-periodic waves in a box.  Several families are found in both the shallow and deep water regimes. The paper can be found here.
