The energy flux in gravity-capillary wave spectra has been obtained using Hasselmann 1962 perturbation analysis for a homogeneous Gaussian sea. Viscous dissipation has not been included in order to simplify the analysis. As expected the exchange of energy is a second order effect, energy is transferred from two active wave components to a third passive component. The energy transfer satisfies the requirements of conservation of energy and conservation of momentum. Author
