On the 3-dimensional water waves system above a flat bottom

Xuecheng Wang

Vol. 10 (2017), No. 4, 893–928
Abstract

As a starting point for studying the long-time behavior of the 3-dimensional water waves system in the flat bottom setting, we try to improve the understanding of the Dirichlet–Neumann operator in this set-up. As an application, we study the 3-dimensional gravity waves system and derive a new energy estimate of L2L type, which has good structure in the L-type space. This has been used in our Ph.D. thesis (2016) to prove the global regularity of the 3-dimensional gravity waves system for suitably small initial data.
