The investigation of nonlinear phenomena in acoustics has a rich history stretching back to the mechanical physical sciences in the nineteenth century. The study of nonlinear phenomena, such as explosions and jet engines, prompted the sharp growth of interest in nonlinear acoustic phenomena. In this book, the authors consider models of different "acoustic" media as well as equations and behavior of finite-amplitude waves. The authors also consider the effects of nonlinearity, dissipation, dispersion, and for two- and three-dimensional problems, reflection and diffraction on the evolution and interaction of acoustic beams. This book will be of interest not only to specialists in acoustics, but also to a wide audience of mathematicians, physicists, and engineers working on nonlinear waves in various physical systems.

Industry Reviews

'This is a very good book ... One cannot but admire the wide scope of the subject, the breadth of the book's coverage, and the skill of its authors.' Zentralblatt '... specialists are offered here a remarkable synthesis of the ... theoretical studies in nonlinear acoustics'. I. Delbende, European Journal of Mechanics '... impressive and useful ... A good test of an advanced book like this one is to go back over problems within its remit that one has attacked in the past, and wonder whether the book would have helped or hindered ... The book passes the test with ease ... this book will be useful to me and to many other research workers in this field and related ones. As a reference and a guide to the literature it is excellent, and its terseness is an advantage when one needs a quick introduction to a subject.' A. Evans, Review in Contemporary Physics
