Bridging the gap between introductory textbooks and advanced monographs, this book provides the necessary mathematical tools to tackle seismological problems and demonstrates how to apply them. Including student exercises, for which solutions are available on a dedicated website, it appeals to advanced undergraduate and graduate students. It is also a useful reference volume for researchers wishing to "brush up" on fundamentals before they study more advanced topics in seismology.Read more
- Bridges the gap between the introductory and advanced seismology books currently available
- Starts from first principles and progressively moves to more advanced topics, demonstrating all the necessary mathematical derivations en-route
- Student exercises and programs for mathematical calculations and data display are made available via the web
