Publisher Synopsis

'Students of seismology have their choice of many excellent texts to help them in this regard. Linear Elastic Waves is an excellent sequel to them.' Justin Revenaugh, University of California '... the present volume is an excellent textbook for a deeper understanding of waves in linear elasticity.' Zentralblatt MATH '... it is with small wonder that we find a whole host of books devoted to the foundations and applications of wave theory ... the advanced researcher, the post-doctoral students, and all wave enthusiasts will profit from reading this book, whose elegance of presentation holds some fascination for the insider.' Waves In Random Media 'I think it is an excellent text and would recommend it to anyone wishing to learn basic linear wave theory or elastic waves in particular.' R. S. Mackay, Contemporary Physics ' ... the advanced researcher, the post-doctoral student, and all wave enthusiasts will profit from reading this book'. Institute of Physics Publishing, Waves in Random Media 'The book is very well written ... The reviewer would highly recommend this book to researchers and advanced students in applied mathematics, engineering, physics and geology.' Journal of Sound and Vibration Read more...
