We develop an AFM (Ablowitz-Fokas-Musslimani) method applicable to studying water waves in a cylindrical geometry. As with the established AFM method for two-dimensional and three-dimensional water waves, the formulation involves only surface variables and is amenable to numerical computation. The method is developed for a general cylindrical surface, and we demonstrate its use for numerically computing fully nonlinear axisymmetric periodic and solitary waves on a ferrofluid column.
