Particle trajectories in linear water waves

Constantin, Adrian LU and Villari, Gabriele (2008) In Journal of Mathematical Fluid Mechanics 10(1). p.1-18
Abstract
We prove that in linear periodic gravity water waves there are no closed orbits for the water particles in the fluid. Each particle experiences per period a backward-forward motion that leads overall to a forward drift.
