Oscillations and Fourier Analysis

  • F. G. Major


A universal property of material objects is their ability to vibrate, whether the vibration results in an audible sound, as in the ringing of a bell, or is subtle and inaudible, as the motion in a quartz crystal. It can be a microscopic oscillation on an atomic scale, or as large as an earthquake. Oscillations in any part of an extended object or medium with undefined boundaries almost always propagate as waves.
