On the standing wave problem in deep water

Abstract : We present a new formulation of the classical two-dimensional standing wave problem which makes transparent the (seemingly mysterious) elimination of the quadratic terms made in [6]. Despite the presence of infinitely many resonances, corresponding to an infinite dimensional kernel of the linearized operator, we solve the infinite dimensional bi-furcation equation by uncoupling the critical modes up to cubic order, via a Lyapunov-Schmidt like process. This is done without using a normalization of the cubic order terms as in [6], where the computation contains a mistake, although the conclusion was in the end correct. Then we give all possible bifurcating formal solutions, as powers series of the amplitude (as in [6]), with an arbitrary number, possibly infinite, of dominant modes.
