Elastic Wave Propagation and Generation in Seismology

by

Elastic Wave Propagation and Generation in Seismology Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

A graduate-level textbook which takes a pedagogical and mathematical approach to seismology.
