Reviews

'I recommend this supplementary textbook as a clear tutorial for understanding the basic concepts of waves and the wave equation with its applications to mechanics, electromagnetic waves and the Schr dinger equation. ... It is written for undergraduates in physics and engineering, but it also has exceptional value to a wider readership. ... Physical insights that are helpful for a deep understanding of waves are uniquely presented. The text is supplemented with clear and useful graphs. The book's website contains additional resources: worked solutions to all problems, animated graphics, a few errata, and author podcasts to augment all the chapters.' Barry R. Masters, Optics and Photonics News
