Wave propagation and scattering are among the most fundamental processes that we use to comprehend the world around us. While these processes are often very complex, one way to begin to understand them is to study wave propagation in the linear approximation. This is a book describing such propagation using, as a context, the equations of elasticity. Two unifying themes are used. The first is that an understanding of plane wave interactions is fundamental to understanding more complex wave interactions. The second is that waves are best understood in an asymptotic approximation where they are free of the complications of their excitation and are governed primarily by their propagation environments. The topics covered include reflection, refraction, the propagation of interfacial waves, integral representations, radiation and diffraction, and propagation in closed and open waveguides. Linear Elastic Waves is an advanced level textbook directed at applied mathematicians, seismologists, and engineers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Students of seismology have their choice of many excellent texts to help them in this regard. Linear Elastic Waves is an excellent sequel to them.' Justin Revenaugh, University of California
'... the present volume is an excellent textbook for a deeper understanding of waves in linear elasticity.' Zentralblatt MATH
'... it is with small wonder that we find a whole host of books devoted to the foundations and applications of wave theory ... the advanced researcher, the post-doctoral students, and all wave enthusiasts will profit from reading this book, whose elegance of presentation holds some fascination for the insider.' Waves In Random Media
'I think it is an excellent text and would recommend it to anyone wishing to learn basic linear wave theory or elastic waves in particular.' R. S. Mackay, Contemporary Physics
' ... the advanced researcher, the post-doctoral student, and all wave enthusiasts will profit from reading this book'. Institute of Physics Publishing, Waves in Random Media
'The book is very well written ... The reviewer would highly recommend this book to researchers and advanced students in applied mathematics, engineering, physics and geology.' Journal of Sound and Vibration
"Abstract concepts are carefully explained and supported with a wealth of examples and illustrations and a wonderful collection of problems, a few of which are elementary enough for any beginner." CHOICE
"This is a book to be read with pad and pencil in hand. Although the text is clear, the author lets the mathematics do most of the speaking." EOS
