Regarding the renaming of the article Anglo-Dutch Wars[edit]

Firstly, hello.

I was just about to rename Anglo-Dutch Wars, as well as the articles on each of the four wars, such that it makes proper use of an en dash; however, I noticed on the former's move log that you had previously done so in 2009. Thus, before going ahead with the move, I was wondering if you have any idea as to why the page is currently called "Anglo-Dutch Wars" with "Anglo–Dutch Wars" set to redirect to it, and why the same is true for the other articles.

Hi Zziccardi, please see this move. Perhaps you can ask Good Olfactory about this: I am not a native English-speaking person. Good luck and best regards, Crowsnest (talk) 19:35, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
Hello. Actually, that link clarified the situation for me, so contacting Good Olfactory won't be necessary. Thank you very much for your assistance, ~zziccardi (talk) 21:17, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

Merger discussion for Multiscale mathematics[edit]


An article that you have been involved in editing, Multiscale mathematics, has been proposed for merging with another article. If you are interested, please participate in the merger discussion. Thank you. Yaris678 (talk) 10:23, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

Stokes drift[edit]

Will you please provide your implementation details (of the plotted equations) when you created the OGV animation related to Stokes wave with drift? I am trying to clarify a doubt: the drift velocity does not appear in the expression of the free surface elevation (to fix ideas, say a second-order approximation). However in the expressions for the particle trajectories we have an explicit term that corresponds to the drift velocity.

The confusing part is this: The free surface height obtained by solving the asymptotic sequence of the potential flow equations gradually separate (with the drift velocity) from the free surface tracked by the particle trajectories.

However, in the OGV animation you posted/created no such phase errors occur. Will you please share the equations that you plotted to create this OGV image? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nadukandi (talkcontribs) 14:00, 13 April 2015‎ (UTC)

Please see the description page of the animation at Commons, for the computational techniques used to obtain the flow associated with the wave motion. Best regards, Crowsnest (talk) 11:30, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
