Primarily intended for the undergraduate students of physics, this book presents a systematic exposition of the fundamentals of physics of oscillations and waves. The treatment of the subject is rigorous, interactive and student-friendly. The involved mathematical steps have been worked out and alternative approaches have been discussed, wherever possible, to equip students with ‘extra’ skills.
Organized in two part—Part I (Oscillations) and Part II (Waves)—the book is structured in such a way that the students participate actively as they proceed and get ample opportunities to develop problem solving skills. More than one hundred problems—numerical and reason based questions—with graded difficulty levels have been included as Practice Exercises and Review Exercises in each chapter. Moreover, Solved Examples have been interspersed in the text to facilitate clear understanding of the concepts involved in each section.
