Vibrations and Waves

by George C. King

Part of the Manchester Physics Series Series

Vibrations and Waves Synopsis

This introductory text emphasises physical principles, rather than the mathematics. Each topic begins with a discussion of the physical characteristics of the motion or system. The mathematics is kept as clear as possible, and includes elegant mathematical descriptions where possible. Designed to provide a logical development of the subject, the book is divided into two sections, vibrations followed by waves. A particular feature is the inclusion of many examples, frequently drawn from everyday life, along with more cutting-edge ones. Each chapter includes problems ranging in difficulty from simple to challenging and includes hints for solving problems. Numerous worked examples included throughout the book.

Vibrations and Waves Press Reviews

Each chapter is accompanied by a set of problems that form an important part of the book. The book could be used by undergraduate students taking a course in oscillation or wave physics. ( Zentralblatt MATH, 2010) The text concisely describes vibrations and waves through mathematical equations with an emphasis on their physical meaning. ( Outrider , January 2010)
