About this title


The main theme of this edition is that the transmission of energy by wave propagation is fundamental to almost every branch of physics. Besides presenting vital knowledge regarding the theory of waves and vibrations, it demonstrates the pattern and unity of a major part of physics. Features an enlarged chapter on nonlinear oscillations along with a copious amount of problems over a wide range of topics.

From the Back Cover:

The transmission of energy by wave propagation is fundamental to almost every branch of physics. Using a practical, applied approach, this book gives a solid grounding in the theory of waves, vibrations and optics, together with demonstrating the pattern and unity of a large part of physics. To aid comprehension a large number of problems at varying degrees of difficulty are given together with hints for solution. The 5th edition of The Physics of Vibrations and Waves features:

  • new material on matrix applications to coupled oscillations, optical systems and multi-layer dielectric films;
  • new sections on electromagnetic waves in the ionosphere and other plasmas, the laser cavity, and optical wave guides;
  • extensive treatment of solitons, including their role in optical transmission lines, in collisionless shocks in space, in non-periodic lattices and their connection with Schrödingers equation.
The Physics of Vibrations and Waves should be read by students taking a first full course in vibration and waves across a variety of disciplines, especially physics, engineering and mathematics.
