9780521624343: Principles of Seismology

This textbook for upper division undergraduates and graduate students provides the ideal introduction to seismology. A student-friendly text fully details the fundamental concepts and includes a step-by-step development of the relevant mathematics. Beginning with clear examples of introductory topics such as one-dimensional problems and liquid media, the book goes on to cover most of the fundamental concepts in seismology. The author describes the application of seismology to the knowledge of the structure of the earth's interior and the origin and nature of earthquakes. Coverage includes seismic wave propagation, normal mode theory, ray theory approximation, body and surface waves, source mechanisms and kinematic and dynamic models. The book also contains appendices on useful mathematical tools and includes extensive problems that help students to understand the basic concepts in this area.

Book Description:

This is a text on seismology at the introductory level. It covers most of the fundamental aspects of the subject and is intended to be as student friendly as possible, but with enough detail of mathematical developments and with emphasis on understanding fundamental concepts. The author describes the application of seismology to the knowledge of the structure of the Earth's interior and the origin and nature of earthquakes. The book contains a large number of figures to help make the text more easily understood, together with extensive problems and exercises.

Review:

"...an excellent new intermediate-level textbook." Applied Mechanics Reviews

"It contains everything I would want my graduate students to have as their initial core knowledge of seismology as they delve into their research. All concepts, both theoretical and observational, are concisely explained within a few pages, and descriptions are crisp and clear. Overall, the whole book is built on the accumulation of such concise, well-written short segments...It would be a good introduction for students who are to become well-balanced researchers." Physics Today

"bridges the gap to the more advanced books on seismology...The author has produced a very instrustive textbook with considerable attention to educational value, as well as historical detail. The book is very well and consistenly organized, with numerous illustrations, which makes it very suitable as a textbook for introductory seismology courses." Pure appl. geophys., Vol 158 2001

" The books pedagogy is excellent. I like this textbok and I recommend it to students, teachers, and applied geophysicists. At a time when textbook prices are soaring, this book is very reasonably priced. It is a good value." Richard Nolen-Hoeksema, University of Michigan

"Agustin Udias book<
"Udia's book provides an excellent, broad overview of seimology. I would be happy to go throug it in reading courses with my own gratuate students. It would be a good introduction for students who are to become well balanced researchers." Physics Today (2000)

"rich in illustrations...Students who take a course based on this book should certainly certainly encounter smooth sailing at the next level of study." EOS 18 Sept 2001

"This book offers a systematic and unified treatment of Seismology not only as the study of the generation, propagation and recording of waves but as a multidisciplinary science. The importance of the study of Seismology is manifold. It is the basis for the investigation of the key elements of the tectonic processes, of the physical properties of the interior of the Earth and Planets, of the seismic risk and of the work toward the prediction of earthquakes...This is a very good, student-friendly, textbook for use by graduate students and teachers in seismology, and can be very useful for scientists as a quick reference book. It should be an absolute necessity on the bookshelves of seismologists for some time to come." Earth Science Review(2001)

Descrizione libro Cambridge University Press. Hardback. Condizione libro: new. BRAND NEW, Principles of Seismology, Agustin Udias, This book, first published in 2000, is an introductory text on seismology intended for upper division undergraduates and graduate students. It emphasises fundamental concepts and basic mathematical developments, and is intended to be 'student friendly'. The author explains the fundamental concepts in full detail with step-by-step development of the mathematics, although the book does assume a knowledge of vector and tensor analysis, calculus and ordinary and partial differential equations, as well as of fundamental physics, especially mechanics and elasticity theory. Simple examples, such as one-dimensional problems and liquid media are used as introductory topics. The book covers most of the fundamental topics in seismology, including seismic wave propagation, normal mode theory, ray theory approximation, body and surface waves, source mechanisms, kinematic and dynamic models and applications to the understanding of the structure of the Earth and seismotectonics. The book also contains appendices on useful mathematical tools and includes extensive problems. Codice libro della libreria B9780521624343
