Table of Contents

Foreword. Preface. Introduction. Ocean acoustic wave propagation problems. Finite difference schemes. Initial and boundary conditions. Range step size analysis. Wide-angle capability. Applicable solution methods other than the implicit finite difference scheme. Representative test examples. Listing of computer codes. Reference citation index. Subject index.


Description

A concise guide to the theory and application of numerical methods for predicting ocean acoustic propagation, also providing an introduction to numerical methods, with an overview of those methods presently in use. An in-depth development of the implicit-finite-difference technique is presented together with bench-mark test examples included to demonstrate its application to realistic ocean environments. Other applications include atmospheric acoustics, plasma physics, quantum mechanics, optics and seismology.

Readership

For ocean scientists and engineers, particularly graduate students involved in basic research.
