Wave propagation : an introduction to engineering analyses

By: Williams, James H.
Publisher: Cambridge : MIT Press, 2019Description: xxii, 426 p. ; ill., 24 cm.ISBN: 9780262039901.Subject(s): Engineering mathematics | Wave mechanics | Sound-waves | Radio wave propagationDDC classification: 620.001 Summary: A wave is a traveling disturbance or oscillation—intentional or unintentional—that usually transfers energy without a net displacement of the medium in which the energy travels. Wave propagation is any of the means by which a wave travels. This book offers an engineering-oriented introduction to wave propagation that focuses on wave propagation in one-dimensional models that are anchored by the classical wave equation. The text is written in a style that is highly accessible to undergraduates, featuring extended and repetitive expositions and displaying and explaining mathematical and physical details—many classical but others not heretofore published. The formulations are devised to provide analytical foundations for studying more advanced topics of wave propagation.
