Abstract

A study is made of the stability, with respect to the spontaneous appearance of modulation, of steady periodic waves of small amplitude on the surface of an ideal liquid depth. The well-known instability of waves on the surface of a liquid of infinite depth disappears on making the transition to small depths.
