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.
by Howard Georgi - Prentice Hall
The first complete introduction to waves and wave phenomena by a renowned theorist. Covers damping, forced oscillations and resonance; normal modes; symmetries; traveling waves; signals and Fourier analysis; polarization; diffraction.
