Handbook of Radiation and Scattering of Waves is a self-contained, medium-level handbook on the time-domain and complex frequency domain radiation and scattering of elastic waves in solids, electromagnetic waves and acoustic waves in fluids. The emphasis is placed on reciprocity as a basic concept for developing the methodology of handling forward (direct) and inverse sources and scattering problems. Using international nomenclature, the text presents a consistent use of the subscript notation for vectors and tensors enabling an effortless transcription of the mathematical expressions into statements in any high-level programming language (i.e., FORTRAN 77 or FORTRAN 90) or in symbolic manipulation programs such as Mathematica<$>(r). Carefully selected exercises, with answers, are provided at the end of each section.
This handbook assumes the reader has a knowledge of elementary mechanics and differential calculus, as well as a grasp of Laplace and Fourier transformation methods.
