The occasion of Professor Fritz Ursell's retirement was marked by a two-day meeting consisting of invited talks by some of the most distinguished researchers in the various topics of fluid mechanics and asymptotics studied by Professor Ursell throughout his long and distinguished career. The papers collected here outline the development of fluid dynamical topics from asymptotic methods in anisotropic wave systems, surface wave theory, biological models, and differential equations, through to slender body theory, water wave theory propellor-generated wakes.

Asymptotic behaviour of anisotropic wave systems stimulated by oscillating sources
Uniform asymptotics of oscillating integrals
Approximations and asymptotics for differential equations
Converging factors
Matched asymptotic methods in surface wave theory
Asymptotics in some biological models
The approximation of free-surface Green functions
On far-field approximations for the wave pattern around a ship at constant speed
An analytical theory of propellor-generated effective wake
Analytic aspects of slender body theory
Vertical barriers, sloping beaches and submerged bodies
Some unsolved problems in water wave theory
