Various properties of vacancy-wave excitations are discussed in detail. Included are (a) the ground-state properties, excitation energy and band width; (b) interaction processes, vacancy-wave-phonon and vacancy-wave-vacancy-wave interactions; (c) the contribution of vacancy waves to the specific heat of3He; and (d) light scattering from the hydrodynamic modes of a system of vacancy-wave excitations.
