Abstract : A theory is developed for the lee waves behind a sphere moving with constant horizontal velocity through an infinite liquid stably stratified. The analysis treats the difference in the vertical displacement from that known to exist in the nonstratified case. Simplifications in the governing differential equations lead to a class of approximate solutions each of which is defined by a particular form of a function. (Author)
