Asymptotic Wave Theory (Mathematics & Mechanics) by Maurice Roseau

By Maurice Roseau

Asymptotic Wave concept investigates the asymptotic habit of wave representations and offers a few usual effects borrowed from hydrodynamics and elasticity concept. It describes innovations resembling Fourier-Laplace transforms, operational calculus, specific features, and asymptotic tools. It additionally discusses purposes to the wave equation, the weather of scattering matrix conception, difficulties with regards to the wave equation, and diffraction.
Organized into 8 chapters, this quantity starts off with an outline of the Fourier-Laplace essential, the Mellin rework, and targeted capabilities corresponding to the gamma functionality and the Bessel capabilities. It then considers wave propagation, with emphasis on representations of airplane, cylindrical or round waves. It methodically introduces the reader to the reflexion and refraction of a airplane wave on the interface among homogeneous media, the asymptotic enlargement of Hankel's services in the community of the purpose at infinity, and the asymptotic habit of the Laplace rework. The e-book additionally examines the tactic of steepest descent, the asymptotic illustration of Hankel's functionality of enormous order, and the scattering matrix idea. the rest chapters specialize in difficulties of stream in open channels, the propagation of elastic waves inside a layered round physique, and a few difficulties in water wave concept.
This publication is a helpful source for mechanics and scholars of utilized arithmetic and mechanics.
