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
