Mathematic Model of Green Function with Two-Dimensional Free Water Surface

**Author(s)**Leave a comment

Adopting complex number theory, a mathematic model of Green function is built for two dimension free water surface, and an analytic expression of Green function is obtained by introducing two parameters. The intrinsic properties of Green function are discussed on vertical line and horizontal line. At last, the derivation expression of Green function is obtained from the formula of Green function.
