Description - Fundamentals of Waves and Oscillations by K. U. Ingard

This is a complete introduction to the theory of waves and oscillations as encountered by physics and engineering students. It discusses both the mathematical theory and the physics of phenomena such as waves in fluids, electromagnetic waves, and discrete coupled oscillators in mechanics and electronics. The author gives a description of the mathematics of complex amplitudes and introduces forced and free oscillations and normal modes of resonance. Chapters cover wave guides, barrier penetration, and electromagnetic transmission. One section, devoted solely to surface waves, includes a discussion on light scattering and the determination of surface tension and viscosity, plasma oscillations, and feedback oscillations. Ideas and equations are displayed for easy reference, and sets of exercises follow each chapter.
