This monograph is the final quantity within the sequence 'Acoustic and Elastic Wave Fields in Geophysics'. the former volumes released by way of Elsevier (2000, 2002) dealt generally with wave propagation in liquid media.

The 3rd quantity is devoted to propagation of airplane, round and cylindrical elastic waves in several media together with isotropic and transversely isotropic solids, liquid-solid versions, and media with cylindrical inclusions (boreholes). * incidence of actual reasoning on formal mathematical derivations * Readers would not have to have a powerful historical past in arithmetic and mathematical physics * specific research of wave phenomena in quite a few different types of elastic and liquid-elastic media
