Description

This is a handbook on the time-domain and complex frequency domain radiation and scattering of elastic waves in solids, electromagnetic waves and acoustic waves in fluids, with emphasis on reciprocity as a basic concept for developing the methodology of handling forward (direct) and inverse sources and scattering problems. Using international nomenclature, the text presents a consistent use of the subscript notation for vectors and tensors enabling an effortless transcription of the mathematical expressions into statements in any high-level programming language (i.e., FORTRAN 77 or FORTRAN 90) or in symbolic manipulation programs such as Mathematica. Selected exercises, with answers, are provided at the end of each section. The book assumes the reader has a knowledge of elementary mechanics and differential calculus, as well as a grasp of Laplace and Fourier transformation methods.
