Theory of Surface Waves

Abstract

In this chapter we review the theory of surface waves from a basic standpoint. First the fundamental theory is discussed for varying degrees of complexity (such as crystal anisotropy, interfaces, overlayers, and piezoelectricity) and then we examine some of the experiments that give basic information on the spectrum of surface waves.
