Cambridge University Press, 2010. — 182 p. — (Cambridge Monographs on Mechanics). — ISBN 9780521875301.John G. Harris intended to explain in this book the special techniques required to model the radiation and diffraction of elastic and surface waves. He sadly died before he could fulfil this ambition, but his plan has been brought to fruition by a team of his distinguished collaborators. The book begins with the basic underlying equations for wave motion and then builds upon this foundation by solving a number of fundamental scattering problems. The remaining chapters provide a thorough introduction to modern techniques that have proven essential to understanding radiation and diffraction at high frequencies. Graduate students, researchers and professionals in applied mathematics, physics and engineering will find that the chapters increase in complexity, beginning with plane-wave propagation and spectral analyses. Other topics include elastic wave theory, the Wiener–Hopf technique, the effects of viscosity on acoustic diffraction, and the phenomenon of channelling of wave energy along guided structures.Suitable for a graduate course in wave theory and diffraction. Will appeal to graduate students and professionals in applied mathematics, physics and engineering. Includes a broad survey of applications in diffraction and scattering theory.Table of Contents
