Course Contents
Basic principles of radiation of (dilatational) acoustic waves are derived. Integral representations and integral equations for the scattered wavefields are discussed. The scattered wavefields are analysed, using the first Born approximation. The acoustic reciprocity theorem and its possible applications are briefly discussed. The basic principles of radiation of dilatational and shear elastodynamic waves are developed. Integral representations for the radiated wavefield of an arbitrary source are derived. The Rayleigh-Betti reciprocity theorem and its applications are briefly discussed.
