View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

This book is a rigorous, self-contained exposition of the mathematical theory for wave propagation in layered media with arbitrary amounts of intrinsic absorption. The theory, previously unpublished in book form, provides solutions for fundamental wave-propagation problems and corresponding numerical results in the context of any media with a linear response (elastic or anelastic). It provides new insights regarding the physical characteristics for two- and three-dimensional anelastic body and surface waves. The book is an excellent graduate-level textbook. It permits fundamental elastic wave propagation to be taught in the broader context of wave propagation in any media with a linear response. The book is a valuable reference text. It provides tools for solving problems in seismology, geotechnical engineering, exploration geophysics, solid mechanics, and acoustics. The numerical examples and problem sets facilitate understanding by emphasizing important aspects of both the theory and the numerical results.

Book Description:

This is the first book to explain the mathematical theory and corresponding numerical results for wave propagation in layered media with arbitrary amounts of intrinsic absorption. It provides fundamental problem-solving tools, including numerical examples, and serves both as a graduate-level textbook and as a reference for earth scientists and engineers.

About the Author:

Roger D. Borcherdt is a research scientist at the United States Geological Survey and consulting professor, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford University, California, where he also served as visiting Shimizu Professor. He holds B.A. and M.A. degrees in theoretical mathematics from the Universities of Colorado and Wisconsin and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Engineering Geoscience with minors in Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Statistics from the University of California, Berkeley. He is the author of more than 150 scientific publications including several on the theoretical and empirical aspects of seismic wave propagation pertaining to problems in seismology, geophysics, and earthquake engineering. He is an honorary member of the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute, past editor of Earthquake Spectra and a member of the American Geophysical Union, the Seismological Society of America, the American Society of Civil Engineering, and the Structural Engineering Association of Northern California. He is the recipient of the US Department of Interior Meritorious Service award for scientific leadership in engineering seismology and the 1994 and 2002 Outstanding Paper Awards of Earthquake Spectra. He is a member of several advisory committees, a registered Geophysicist in the State of California (GP 163), and co-inventor of the General Earthquake Observation System (GEOS), patent number 4,603,486.
