Several new features have been introduced, many new topics are added and some topics are modified and rewritten in this edition. Most of the additions and modifications were suggested by those who have used the text and by several reviewers. The examples and problems based on C++ and Fortran programs, given in the fourth edition of the book, have been deleted. Some important changes should be noted: Chapter outline and learning objectives are stated at the beginning of each chapter. Chapter summary is given at the end of each chapter. The presentation of some of the topics is modified for expanded coverage and better clarity. These include the discussion on the basic components of vibration - spring elements, damping elements and mass or inertia elements, vibration isolation, and active vibration control. Many new topics are added with detailed presentation and illustrative examples.

The main theme of this highly successful book is that the transmission of energy by wave propogation is fundamental to almost every branch of physics. Therefore, besides giving students a thorough grounding in the theory of waves and vibrations, the book also demonstrates the pattern and unity of a large part of physics. This new edition has been thoroughly revised and has been redeisgned to meet the best contemporary standards. It includes new material on electron waves in solids using the Kronig-Penney model to show how their allowed energies are limited to Brillouin zones, The role of phonons is also discussed. An Optical Transform is used to demonstrate the modern method of lens testing. In the last two chapters the sections on chaos and solitons have been reduced but their essential contents remain. As with earlier editions, the book has a large number of problems together with hints on how to solve them. The Physics of Vibrations and Waves, 6th Edition will prove invaluable for students taking a first full course in the subject across a variety of disciplines particularly physics, engineering and mathematics.
