Provides the necessary mathematical tools to tackle seismological problems, and demonstrates how to apply them. Solutions to student exercises are available on a dedicated website.
'Overall I recommend Elastic Wave Propagation and Generation in Seismology for an introductory course in theoretical seismology, especially if it is augmented with practical experience. The full text could be comfortably covered over the course of one semester and can serve as a helpful guide to instructors and students alike.' EOS '! will do well as an intermediate, but concentrated textbook in seismological theory.' The Leading Edge 'The author must be congratulated for providing students of seismology with a very useful textbook.' Journal of Seismology 'I enjoyed reading this book and was impressed with the breadth and depth of the material, and how thoroughly the author presented it ! The intermediate-level tutorial nature of the book will appeal to geophysicists and students who want to improve their understanding of elastic wave propagation theory. I recommend it highly.
