Abstract : Schwinger's variational formulation is applied to the radiation of surface waves due to small oscillation of bodies. By means of Haskind's theorem the wave forces on a stationary body due to a plane incident wave are found using only far field properties. Results for horizontal rectangular cylinders are presented.
