Numerical Calculation of Three-Dimensional Interfacial Potential Flows Using the Point Vortex Method


An application of the point vortex method to the singular Biot--Savart integrals used in water wave calculations is presented. The error for this approximation is shown to be a series in odd powers of h. A method for calculating the coefficients in the series is presented.
