Abstract

At present there exist about ten thousand books and papers dealing with the subject of surface acoustic waves in solids first described by Rayleigh in 1885 [1.1], and it is impossible even to mention all of them. But it is hardly necessary to do this, since there exist a great number of reviews [1.2-5] and monographs [1.6-18] concerning both the properties of surface acoustic waves and their application in special signal processing devices. Therefore, in this review chapter we present only the basic properties of the Rayleigh waves, Gulyaev—Bleustein waves, and waves of certain other types that are very often referred to in original chapters of this monograph.
