Lectures on Wave Propagation
by G.B. Whitham
Publisher: Tata Institute of Fundamental Research 1979
Number of pages: 148
The first three chapters provide basic background on the theory of characteristics and shock waves. The main content is an entirely new presentation. It is on water waves, with special emphasis on old and new results for waves on a sloping beach.

The advances in nanotechnology give rise new types of materials with unique properties. This book is devoted to the modern methods in electrodynamics and acoustics, developed to describe wave propagation in these modern materials and nanodevices.
The wave is a physical phenomenon that is found in a variety of contexts. 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 mechanisms.
