This book deals with vibrations and waves. Its aim is to understand the basic principles and methods of analyzing vibrations and waves.
The vibrations part includes studies of simple harmonic mechanical and electromagnetic vibrations, systems with several degrees of freedom, superposition of vibrations, Fourier analysis and forced vibrations.
The waves part includes a detailed study of propagation in infinite media (one and three-dimensional wave equations, polarization, dispersion, energy, attenuation, Doppler effect). Mechanical (elastic and acoustic) and electromagnetic waves are studied in details. Included also are chapters on reflection and refraction, interference and diffraction, standing waves and guided waves.
