The book develops a cross-disciplinary approach to the phenomenon of linear and nonlinear wave propagation in piezoelectric crystals.Based on the rigorous presentation of nonlinear continuum mechanics and electromechanical interactions in anisotropic bodies, the work starts from primary principles, is progressive and develops the subject matter by means of worked out examples up to the most recent applications in signal processing, introducing the most efficient methods of applied mathematics.The attention is especially focused on phenomena such as the formation of shocks, the generation harmonics, the anisochronism of resonators, nonlinear surface waves, the convolution of signals by means of surface-wave guides, the nonlinear couling between the crystal and deformations, the compensation between dispersion and nonlinearity. The work should be of pedagogical and practical interest to graduate students and research workers in various fields of applied science and engineering.
