On the symmetry of periodic gravity water waves with vorticity
We study the a priori symmetry of periodic gravity water waves with arbitrarily many crests and troughs, and general vorticity distributions. We show that if all the streamlines achieve their global minimum on the same vertical line, then the wave has exactly one trough and crest within a period, and is symmetric with respect to the vertical line containing the crest.
