The paper presents a simplified new expression for the fundamental solution (the Green function) in the theory of steady motion of a ship, that is, the linearized disturbance velocity potential of the steady, inviscid free-surface gravity flow due to a unit source in an oncoming uniform stream, sometimes also referred to as the "Havelock source potential."
