Overview

Vibrations and Waves is based on an introductory course given regularly by the author. The text provides the student with a thorough grounding in the theory of vibrations and waves.

Throughout the book, the fundamental principles of vibrations and waves are emphasised so that these principles can be applied to a wide range of oscillating systems and to different kinds of waves.

The text, which is divided into two sections, vibrations followed by waves, follows a logical progression from the simple harmonic oscillator to waves in continuous media.

Vibrations and Waves includes:

Vibrations and waves beautifully and concisely described in terms of the mathematical equations used throughout the book.

Worked examples throughout

Problems ranging in difficulty from simple to challenging

Solutions and hints to the problems at the end of the book
