About this book

Acoustics of Layered Media II presents the theory of sound propagation and reflection of spherical waves and bounded beams in layered media. It is mathematically rigorous but at the same time care is taken that the physical usefulness in applications and the logic of the theory are not hidden. Both moving and stationary media, discretely and continuously layered, including a range-dependent environment, are treated for various types of acoustic wave sources. Detailed appendices provide further background on the mathematical methods.
This second edition reflects the notable recent progress in the field of acoustic wave propagation in inhomogeneous media.

Reviews

"The two books are characterized by scholasticity in the analytical treatment. The analysis is rigorous and complete. This could be attributed to the 'Russian school' where both authors belong to, offering an excellent framework for the study of problems of Mathematical Physics. ...In general, the books are considered valuable for researchers interested in the mathematical modeling of wave phenomena as they provide the readers with a comprehensive coverage of practically all the analytical aspects of the forward problem of acoustic wave propagation. In addition, throughout the books, they will meet many references to non-standard issues, as the propogation in moving media and energy conservation." Michael Taroudakis, Acustica United with Acta Acus, 2000/86/6
