Abstract

Many signals have wavefronts that are not planar. The simplest to analyze are the waves generated by a vibrating spherical surface. Although a vibrating sphere is not frequently encountered in practice, the ability to generate solutions for a variety of situations makes that configuration extremely useful, both for verifying numerical techniques and for exploring fundamental issues.
