Abstract

This study is concerned about finding simple solution techniques to deter- mine the wave-wave interactions of four progressive waves travelling with four different wavenumbers and frequencies in a deep ocean. It has been demonstrated by many previous researchers including Phillips [6] and Has- selmann et.al [I] that this set of four waves, called a quadruplet, could ex- change energy if they interact nonlinearly such that the resonance conditions are satisfied. In this paper, however, we shall be concerned with the approx- imate solutions of the nonlinear transfer action functions which satisfy a set of first order ordinary differential equations using the JONS WAP spectrum as the initial input condition. We wil
