This excellent undergraduate-level text emphasizes optics and acoustics, covering inductive derivation of the equation for transverse waves on a string, acoustic plane waves, boundary-value problems, polarization, three-dimensional waves and more. With numerous problems (solutions for about half). qThe material is superbly chosen and brilliantly writtenq a Physics Today. Problems. Appendices.The concept of frustrated total reflection has an important application in nuclear physics. ... A formula analogous to Eq. (17-69) (the asymptotic case a agt;agt; 1/5) is derived from the Schrodinger equation. ... Eq. (17-10), takes on a different form from that for p or Ac. d) Given Ac = (1 /r)f(t a r/c) show explicitly that v = agrad 11agt; is aanbsp;...
