Propagation of Bulk Waves
Chapter 4 describes propagation characteristics of bulk waves in fluid and solid media. Both plane and spherical waves are considered. Spherical wave solutions in particular are shown to be useful in describing bulk waves generated from point sources (also called fundamental solutions). In later chapters such fundamental solutions form building blocks for more general problems.
