Seminar - Harmonics dispersion relation: A new fundamental theory of strongly nonlinear waves - Apr. 5

April 2, 2024

Wave motion lies at the heart of many disciplines in the physical sciences and engineering. For example, problems and applications involving light, sound, heat, or fluid flow are all likely to involve wave dynamics at some level. While the theory of linear waves is fairly established, nonlinear wave motion remains a...
