On the energy flux of Hide waves
- 24 Downloads
There are two ways to define the energy flux for Hide waves, one from its equations of motion and the other by multiplying its mean energy density by group velocity and these lead to different results FollowingLonguet-Higgins we point out that this is due to certain arbitrariness in the definition of the energy flux and that their difference is just a solenoidal vector.
