Waves

Publisher: Wikibooks

Description:
The wave is a physical phenomenon that is found in a variety of contexts, a perturbation in the medium. 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 underlying physical mechanisms.

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.
