Any periodic motion of a fluid can be decomposed by Fourier analysis into a superposition of sinusoidal oscillations with different frequencies ω and wavelengths λ. A simple wave is any one of these components. When the oscillation amplitude is small, the waveform is generally sinusoidal; and there is only one component. This is the situation we shall consider.
