Vibrations and Waves G.C. King

*Vibrations and Waves* is based on an introductory course given regularly by the author. The text provides the student with a thorough grounding in the theory of vibrations and waves.

Throughout the book, the fundamental principles of vibrations and waves are emphasised so that these principles can be applied to a wide range of oscillating systems and to different kinds of waves.

The text, which is divided into two sections, *vibrations* followed by *waves*, follows a logical progression from the simple harmonic oscillator to waves in continuous media.

*Vibrations* and *Waves* includes:

- Vibrations and waves beautifully and concisely described in terms of the mathematical equations used throughout the book
- Worked examples throughout
- Problems ranging in difficulty from simple to challenging

Solutions and hints to the problems at the end of the book
