The trajectories of particles in Stokes waves

Constantin, Adrian (2006) In Inventiones Mathematicae 166(3). p.523-535
Abstract
Analyzing a free boundary problem for harmonic functions we show that there are no closed particle paths in an irrotational inviscid traveling wave propagating at the surface of water over a flat bed: within a period each particle experiences a backward-forward motion with a slight forward drift.
