Non-Linear Waves in Dispersive Media introduces the theory behind such topic as the gravitational waves on water surfaces. Some limiting cases of the theory, wherein proof of an asymptotic class is necessary and generated, are also provided. The first section of the book discusses the notion of linear approximation. This discussion is followed by some samples of dispersive media. Examples of stationary waves are also examined.
The book proceeds with a discussion of waves of envelopes. The concept behind this subject is from the application of the methods of geometrical optics to non-linear theory. A section on non-linear waves with slowly varying parameters is given at the end of the book, along with a discussion of the evolution of electro-acoustic waves in plasma with negative dielectric permittivity. The gravitational waves on fluid surfaces are presented completely.
The text will provide valuable information for physicists, mechanical engineers, students, and researchers in the field of optics, acoustics, and hydrodynamics.
