About this Textbook

This textbook is intended for those second year undergraduates in science and engineering
who will later need an understanding of electromagnetic theory and quantum mechanics. The classical physics of oscillations and waves is developed at a more advanced level than has been customary for the second year, providing a basis for the quantum mechanics that follows. In this new edition the Green's function is explained, reinforcing the integration of quantum mechanics with classical physics. The text may also form the basis of an "introduction to theoretical physics" for physics majors. The concluding chapters give special attention to topics in current wave physics: nonlinear waves, solitons, and chaotic behavior.

About the authors

From the reviews: 

"The book has qualities that one looks for in an undergraduate text: good organization, lucid text, well-thought-out sample problems, and problems to develop solid understanding of the subject." Applied Mechanics Reviews

"… A stimulating book for the undergraduate who is strong mathematically." Contemporary Physics
