Abstract : The following is a review of some phases of research, over the last decade, on water waves strongly influenced by the seabed. The first sections discuss progress made in the understanding of the transformation of waves into run-up and back-wash on a beach. This phenomenon is closely related to the theory of singular partial differential equations. Section 7 summarizes results on the resonance of unbounded water bodies adjacent to shores. (Author)
