1915] DEEP WATER WAVES, PEOGRESSIVE OR STATIONARY 307 The velocity-potential <£, being periodic in x, may be expressed by the series <f> = ae-v sin sc — a.'e~y cos x + /30~22/ sin 2cc - fi'e-"y cos 2as + 7 e~*v sin Bos - <y'e~*v cos 3a? + . . . , ... (3) where a, a', & etc., are functions of the time only, and y is measured downwards from mean level. In accordance with (3) the component velocities are given by u = d<f*/dos = e~y (a cos x + of sin as) 4- 2e~22/ (/9 cos 2* -l- /3' sin — y = c£<£/% = e"2/ (a sin a; — a' cos x) + 2e~2^ (/9 sin 2# — $' cos 2#) + .... The density being taken as unity, the pressure equation is p=-d(t>/dt + F + gy~%(u* + vz), .................. (4) in which F is a function of the time. In applying (4) we will regard a, a', as small quantities of the first order, while /3, /?', 7, 7', are small quantities of the second order at most ; and for the present we retain only quantities of the second order. /3, etc., will then not appear in the expression for 11? + v*.

But when the velocity is high enough, or the viscosity low enough, the motion becomes turbulent, and the flow of heat may be greatly augmented. With the same reasoning and with the same notation as before we have
