Water Waves: The Mathematical Theory With Applications
by J. J. Stoker
Publisher: Interscience Publishers 1957
Number of pages: 609
Offers an integrated account of the mathematical hypothesis of wave motion in liquids with a free surface, subjected to gravitational and other forces. Uses both potential and linear wave equation theories, together with applications such as the Laplace and Fourier transform methods, conformal mapping and complex variable techniques in general or integral equations, methods employing a Green's function.

We begin by discussing waves in matter - sound being a special case. To understand the nature of light we begin by introducing Electric and Magnetic fields and build the relationships which develop into the Maxwell's Electromagnetic Field Equations.
