Elastic Wave Propagation and Generation in Seismology by Jose Pujol

By Jose Pujol

Seismology has complementary observational and theoretical parts, and a radical figuring out of the observations calls for a legitimate theoretical historical past. This e-book bridges the distance among introductory textbooks and complex monographs through delivering the mandatory mathematical instruments and demonstrating the best way to practice them. each one seismological challenge is punctiliously formulated and its resolution is derived in a step by step procedure. The textual content contains scholar workouts (with hints), for which recommendations can be found on a devoted web site. This site additionally comprises quite a few downloadable courses for the computation of mirrored image and transmission coefficients, for the iteration of P and S wave radiation styles and artificial seismograms, in limitless media. This e-book will consequently discover a receptive viewers between complicated undergraduate and graduate scholars attracted to constructing a fantastic mathematical heritage to take on extra complex issues in seismology. it's going to additionally shape an invaluable reference quantity for researchers wishing to sweep up at the fundamentals.
