I will describe results of global existence and scattering for water waves (inviscid, irrotational), in the case of small data. I will examine two physical settings: gravity, but no capillarity; or capillarity, but no gravity. The proofs rely on the space-time resonance method, which I will briefly present. This is joint work with Nader Masmoudi and Jalal Shatah.
