Wave Physics: Oscillations, Solitons & Chaos – Stephen Nettel – 4th Edition

This book details all and aspects of classical wave phenomena. Coverage in this new edition includes an explanation of Green’s function, reinforcing the integration of quantum mechanics with classical physics.

This textbook is intended for those second year undergraduates in science and engineering. who will later need an understanding of theory and quantum mechanics.

The classical physics of oscillations and waves is developed at a more advanced level than has been customary for the second year, providing a basis for the quantum mechanics that follows. In this new edition the Green’s function is explained, reinforcing the integration of quantum mechanics with classical physics. The text may also form the basis of an “ to theoretical physics” for physics majors.

The concluding chapters give special attention to topics in current wave physics: nonlinear waves, solitons, and chaotic .
