About this book

Authored by four internationally-renowned scientists, this volume covers 20 years of progress in computational ocean acoustics and presents the latest numerical techniques used in solving the wave equation in heterogeneous fluid-solid media. The authors detail various computational schemes and illustrate many of the fundamental propagation features via 2-D colour displays. This textbook is for students and researchers in applied mathematics, geology, geophysics, ocean engineering, and acoustics.
