Publisher: Oliver And Boyd
ISBN/ASIN: 1406775320
Number of pages: 174

Description:
The object of this book is to consider from an elementary standpoint as many different types of wave motion as possible. In almost every case the fundamental problem is the same, since it consists in solving the standard equation of wave motion; the various applications differ chiefly in the conditions imposed upon these solutions.
