*Book Title*1 | H. J. Pain | The Physics of vibrations and waves 6th Ed. |

Review: The main theme of this highly successful book is that the transmission of energy by wave propogation is fundamental to almost every branch of physics. Therefore, besides giving students a thorough grounding in the theory of waves and vibrations, the book also demonstrates the pattern and unity of a large part of physics. This new edition has been thoroughly revised and has been redeisgned to meet the best contemporary standards. It includes new material on electron waves in solids using the Kronig-Penney model to show how their allowed energies are limited to Brillouin zones, The role of phonons is also discussed. An Optical Transform is used to demonstrate the modern method of lens testing. In the last two chapters the sections on chaos and solitons have been reduced but their essential contents remain. As with earlier editions, the book has a large number of problems together with hints on how to solve them. The Physics of Vibrations and Waves, 6th Edition will prove invaluable for students taking a first full course in the subject across a variety of disciplines particularly physics, engineering and mathematics. |

4 | B.A. Auld | Acoustic_fields_and_waves_in_solids |

Review: Volume One begins with a systematic development of basic concepts (strain, stress, stiffness and compliance, viscous clamping) and coordinate transformations in both tensor and matrix notation. The basic elastic field equations are then written in a form analogous to Maxwell’s equations. This analogy is then pursued when analyzing wave propagation in both isotropic and anisotropic solids. Piezoelectricity and bulk wave transducers are treated in the final chapter. Appendixes list slowness diagrams and material properties for various crystalline solids. |

5 | C.A.Coulson | Waves |

Review: The object of this book is to consider from an elementary standpoint as many different types of wave motion as possible. In almost every case the fundamental problem is the same, since it consists in solving the standard equation of wave motion; the various applications differ chiefly in the conditions imposed upon these solutions. |

7 | S.S. Rao | Mechanical vibrations |

With an emphasis on computer techniques of analysis, this book presents the theory, computational aspects, and applications of vibrations in as simple a manner as possible. This text gives expanded explanations of the fundamentals of vibration including history of vibration, degree of freedom systems, vibration control, vibration measurement, and more. For engineers and other professionals who want a clear introduction to vibration engineering. | ||

9 | Beranek L. | Acoustics |

Review: Whether your interest is as a musician, an audiophile or as a studio engineer this book is a must read!I’m not much good at math, but I learned a lot from this and enjoy the dry humor ( ex: “The Beranek Effect” ) Highly comprehensive and there have been changes made to my stereo system as a result of reading this; I often refer back to it |
