Two-dimensional capillary–gravity waves travelling under the effect of a vertical electric field are considered. The fluid is assumed to be a dielectric of infinite depth. It is bounded above by another fluid which is hydrodynamically passive and perfectly conducting. The problem is solved numerically by time-dependent conformal mapping methods. Fully nonlinear waves are presented, and their stability and dynamics are studied.
