The subject of cylinders oscillating in or below the free surface of very deep fluids is developed as a boundary value problem within the framework of linear free-surface theory by distributing source singularities over the submerged portion of the cylinders. A computer program for calculating the hydrodynamic pressure, force, and moment of fluids on these cylinders was devised. The results for various two-dimensional shapes are given in graphical form.
