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 first three chapters provide basic background on the theory of characteristics and shock waves. The main content is an entirely new presentation. It is on water waves, with special emphasis on old and new results for waves on a sloping beach.
