**Waves**

**Publisher**: Wikibooks 2012

**Description**:

The wave is a physical phenomenon that is found in a variety of contexts, a perturbation in the medium. The purpose of this text is to describe the kinematics of waves, i.e., to provide tools for describing the form and motion of all waves irrespective of their underlying physical mechanisms.
