We study the local and globalwell posedness for the initial-boundary-value problem associated with the Benney–Luke equation on the half line on suitable Sobolev type spaces, imposing some compatibility conditions on the initial-boundary-data. The solution mapping associated to the appropriate initial-boundary-data is Lipschitz between appropriate Banach spaces.
