## Non-linear Waves in Dispersive MediaNon-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 the ... |
