Kelvin Waves

Starting with the equations for Shallow Water Theory, continue studying section 3.9, page 75 of Joe Pedlosky's book "Geophysical Fluid Dynamics." Explain mathematically the difference between a poincare wave and a kelvin wave. After deriving equations (3.9.19) on page 78, use Mathematica and plot the particle paths of typical particles in a kelvin wave.
