Elastic Wave Propagation and Generation in Seismology

Elastic Wave Propagation and Generation in Seismology

Bridging the gap between introductory textbooks and advanced monographs, this book provides the necessary mathematical tools to tackle seismological problems and demonstrates how to apply them. Including student exercises, for which solutions are available on a dedicated website, it appeals to advanced undergraduate and graduate students. It is also a useful reference volume for researchers wishing to "brush up" on fundamentals before they study more advanced topics in seismology.


"I recommend it highly." William A. Schneider, The Leading Edge

'… will do well as an intermediate, but concentrated textbook in seismological theory.' The Leading Edge

'The author must be congratulated for providing students of seismology with a very useful textbook.' Journal of Seismology

'I enjoyed reading this book and was impressed with the breadth and depth of the material, and how thoroughly the author presented it … The intermediate-level tutorial nature of the book will appeal to geophysicists and students who want to improve their understanding of elastic wave propagation theory. I recommend it highly. The Leading Edge
