The purpose of this this paper is to present a new simple proof for the construction of unique solutions to the moving free-boundary incompressible 3-D Euler equations in vacuum. Our method relies on the Lagrangian representation of the fluid, and the anisotropic smoothing operation that we call horizontal convolution-by-layers. The method is general and can be applied to a number of other moving free-boundary problems.
