Book Description

This book covers all aspects of waves and optics ranging from one dimensional waves in a vibrating string, two dimensional waves in a vibrating membrane, both of which are transverse, three dimensional electromagnetic
waves generated by radiating antennas and longitudinal sound/pressure waves in an air column.
