Model equations

The wave height is modelled by the equation:

$\eta = \frac{\lambda}{k} \cos (k x -\omega t + \phi) + \frac{(\lambda^2 B_{22} + \lambda^4 B_{24})}{\lambda} \cos\left(2(k x - \omega t + \phi)\right) + \frac{(\lambda^3 B_{33} + \lambda^5 B_{35})}{\lambda} \cos\left(3(k x - \omega t + \phi)\right) + \frac{(\lambda^4 B_{44})}{\lambda} \cos\left(4(k x - \omega t + \phi)\right) + \frac{(\lambda^5 B_{55})}{\lambda} \cos\left(5(k x - \omega t + \phi)\right)$

where:

 $$\lambda$$ = first order wave amplitude $$k$$ = wave number $$\omega$$ = angular frequency $$\phi$$ = phase shift $$B_{xx}$$ = coefficients in the fifth order solution $$t$$ = time
