Wave Propagation

  • Heinz Parkus


If some quantity such as stress, velocity, or temperature gradient experiences a discontinuity (jump) across a surface A, and if the surface moves through the body, we speak of a wave, and call A the wave front. In particular, depending on the shape of the surface, we may have plane waves, cylindrical waves, spherical waves, etc.
