This paper is devoted to the numerical simulation of wave
breaking. It presents the results of a numerical workshop that was
held during the conference LOMA04. The objective is to compare
several mathematical models (compressible or incompressible) and
associated numerical methods to compute the flow field during a
wave breaking over a reef. The methods will also be compared with
experiments.
