The Physics of Vibrations and Waves
H. J. Pain
This edition includes new material on electron waves in solids using the Kronig – Penney model to show how their allowed energies are limited to Brillouin zones. The role of phonons is also discussed. Convolutions are introduced and applied to optical problems via the Array Theorem in Young’s experiment and the Optical Transfer Function. In the last two chapters the sections on Chaos and Solutions have been reduced but their essential contents remain.
