Summary: The mechanism of establishment of small-amplitude surface waves above a perturbation source that instantly starts to move uniformly and rectilinearly inside an initially unperturbed fluid parallel to its free surface is described. As perturbation sources, point hydrodynamic singularities of arbitrary order are considered.
