Waves and oscillations in nature : an introduction / A. Satya Narayanan and Swapan K. Saha.

By: Narayanan, A. Satya [author].
Contributor(s): Saha, Swapan K [author].
Material type: TextTextPublisher: Boca Raton : CRC Press, ©2015Description: xxix, 521 p. : illustrations ; 24 cm.ISBN: 9781466590939 (hardcover : alk. paper).Subject(s): Theory of wave-motion | OscillationsDDC classification: 531.1133
Contents:
1. Introduction to waves and oscillations -- 2. Electromagnetic waves -- 3. Waves in a uniform media -- 4. Hydrodynamic waves -- 5. MHD waves in a uniform media -- 6. MHD waves in a non-uniform media -- 7. Shock waves -- 8. Waves in optics -- 9. Plasma waves -- 10. Fluid and plasma instabilities.
Summary: Waves and Oscillations in Nature: An Introduction clearly elucidates the dynamics and behavior of waves and oscillations in various mediums. It presents different types of waves and oscillations that can be observed and studied from macroscopic to microscopic scales. The book provides a thorough introduction for researchers and graduate students in assorted areas of physics, such as fluid dynamics, plasma physics, optics, and astrophysics. The book also describes types of shock waves, such as normal and oblique shocks, and discusses important details pertaining to waves in optics, including polarization from experimental and observational points of view. The book concludes with a focus on plasmas, covering different plasma parameters, quasilinear and nonlinear aspects of plasma waves, and various instabilities in hydrodynamics and plasmas.
