9780521339575: Fundamentals of Waves and Oscillations
View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

This is a complete introduction to the theory of waves and oscillations as encountered by physics and engineering students. It discusses both the mathematical theory and the physics of phenomena such as waves in fluids, electromagnetic waves, and discrete coupled oscillators in mechanics and electronics. The author gives a description of the mathematics of complex amplitudes and introduces forced and free oscillations and normal modes of resonance. Chapters cover wave guides, barrier penetration, and electromagnetic transmission. One section, devoted solely to surface waves, includes a discussion on light scattering and the determination of surface tension and viscosity, plasma oscillations, and feedback oscillations. Ideas and equations are displayed for easy reference, and sets of exercises follow each chapter.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 1988. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This textbook, addressed primarily to physics and engineering students, is a comprehensive introduction to waves and oscillations, both mechanical and electromagnetic. Elementary aspects of matter waves are also considered. One objective is to illustrate the physics involved in the description and analysis of waves through a wide range of examples, from purely mechanical and purely electromagnetic to coupled electro-mechanical waves, such as plasma oscillations and hydromagnetic waves. In this process, the use of complex amplitudes in the mathematical analysis is illuminated and encouraged to make tractable a wider range of problems than is ordinarily considered in an introductory text. General concepts and wave phenomena such as wave energy and momentum, interference, diffraction, scattering, dispersion, and the Doppler effect are illustrated by numerous examples and demonstrations. Among the special topics covered are waves on periodic structures and in solids, wave guides, a detailed analysis of light scattering from thermal fluctuations of a liquid surface, and feedback instabilities. Important ideas and equations are displayed in boxes for easy reference, and there are numerous examples throughout the text and exercises at the end of every chapter. Undergraduates and graduates should find this an indispensable account of this central subject in science and engineering. Seller Inventory # AAV9780521339575
