Computation Techniques for Surface Waves

This chapter describes some techniques for computing surface wave fields with examples of their use. Since the theory of surface waves in laterally varying media set forth in Chapters 2 and 3 is essentially based on the properties of eigenfunctions and eigenvalues in one-dimensional boundary value problems for Love and Rayleigh waves discussed in Chapter 1, we begin by discussing solutions to those problems (Sections 4.1 and 4.2).
