THE STABILITY OF A SHIP IN A SIMPLE SINUSOIDAL WAVE
The linear differential equations governing the motion of a ship in a sinusoidal wave disturbance are derived from the principles of rigid body dynamics. Stability criteria are obtained when the linear differential equations have (a) constant coefficients and (b) periodic time-dependent coefficients that are needed to describe the ship in a following sinusoidal wave. The frequency of encounter between ship and wave is not necessarily zero.
