    It is shown that a waveguide in the form of a channel of infinite length filled by a two-layer heavy fluid with a free surface can have nonpropagating waves (trapped vibrational modes) along with traveling waves. These waves are localized in the region of a dynamic inclusion, i.e., a solid block...
