lecting the wide range of shock waves, the authors of the various chapters are a truly international group, from China, Japan, Israel, eastern and western Europe, North America, and Australia. They are all authorities on the topics they treat, and their articles are well written. There is no collective index for the set, but each volume has a separate, reasonably adequate index. There would obviously be significant interest in this handbook for researchers in aerodynamics, detonations, blast dynamics, any area of work using shock tubes, and so forth. Given the many fields to which shock waves are applicable, this set would in fact be useful to research libraries in a wide range of science and technology."
--ROBERT MICHAELSON, Science and Engineering Librarian, Northwestern University Science and Engineering Library
"...reinforces the amazing breadth and depth to be found in the study and application of shock waves...contains precious jewels...valuable in providing a comprehensive summary of the state of the art...an excellent summary of the techniques and results of the topics covered."
