The subjects covered vary from speech and hearing research to flow control and active control systems, from bubble oscillations to cavitation structures, from ordering phenomena in liquids and solids to complex dynamics of chaotic nonlinear systems.
The wave is a physical phenomenon that is found in a variety of contexts. The purpose of this text is to describe the kinematics of waves, i.e., to provide tools for describing the form and motion of all waves irrespective of their mechanisms.

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.

The advances in nanotechnology give rise new types of materials with unique properties. This book is devoted to the modern methods in electrodynamics and acoustics, developed to describe wave propagation in these modern materials and nanodevices.
