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.

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. The text may also form the basis of an "introduction to theoretical physics" for physics majors.

The third semester is often the only opportunity for physics depart ments to present to students who are not physics majors a coherent background in the physics of waves required later for confident handling of applied problems, especially applications based on quantum mechanics.

The concluding chapters on nonlinear waves, solitons, and chaos broaden the previously established concepts of wave behavior, while introducing the reader to important topics in current wave physics.

Qag
This is a somewhat advanced text demonstrating efficient methods available for solving problems in wave-related physics. As such, the text is good for someone who has already had the following math and physics courses at the 3rd or 4th year undergraduate level:

Classical Mechanics
Electricity and Magnetism
Quantum Mechanics
Partial Differential Equations
Linear Algebra
Complex Analysis

The text is presented as being suitable for people without this preparation. It is targeted at students in "accelerated programs" at the intermediate undergraduate level, but that is unrealistic. Bright students will probably manage to "muddle through" the book and the homework assignments but will miss the physical insights available from more careful treatments. If you are looking to learn material on waves for the first time, this is not the book for you.
However, if you are an advanced undergraduate (senior) or beginning graduate student, this book is valuable for its sophisticated and unifying perspective on material that you will have seen in your upper undergraduate level classes. Towards the end of the book, the author introduces solitons and chaos with a level of detail not usually seen in texts for undergraduates. Although it is an advanced book for an undergraduate, it is not an "advanced graduate" text (read: "research prep." a'la Springer Monographs).

In short, it is an excellent book to own and read if you already have, or are about to have, a degree in physics. Otherwise, look elsewhere.
