The book collects original and innovative research studies of the experienced and actively working scientists in the field of wave propagation which produced new methods in this area of research and obtained new and important results. Every chapter of this book is the result of the authors achieved in the particular field of research. The themes of the studies vary from investigation on modern applications such as metamaterials, photonic crystals and nanofocusing of light to the traditional engineering applications of electrodynamics such as antennas, waveguides and radar investigations....
Grammar is a very old field of study. Did you know that the
sentence was first divided into subject and verb by Plato,
the famed philosopher from ancient Greece? That was
about 2,400 years ago! Ever since then, students all over
the world have found it worthwhile to study the structure
of words and sentences. Why? Because skill in speaking
and writing is the hallmark of all educated people.
The subject of acoustic waves might easily be considered a mature one, quite
specialized, with narrow and circumscribed fields of interest and of application. The
present book is an evidence of the opposite: it witnesses how the concept of acoustic
wave, a collective displacement of matter which perturbs an equilibrium
configuration, is a pervasive concept, which emerges in very different fields. This type
of phenomena can be analyzed from different points of view, it can be exploited in
different ways, and is the object of active investigations.
