Basic wave phenomena reﬂection – change of wave direction from hitting a reﬂective surface, refraction – change of wave direction from entering a new medium, diffraction – wave circular spreading from entering a small hole (of the wavelength-comparable size), or wave bending around small obstacles. For a first book, I very much enjoyed Introduction to Wave Phenomena, By Hirose. This book uses very simple English to introduce waves at a level appropriate for a 2nd or 3rd year undergraduate. As a non-traditional physics graduate student, this book took me a week or so to master, and was very enjoyable.

Wave behaviour. Waves display several basic phenomena. In reflection, a wave encounters an obstacle and is reflected back. In refraction, a wave bends when it enters a medium through which it has a different speed. In diffraction, waves bend when they pass around small obstacles and spread out when they pass through small openings. Wave Phenomena. Wave motion involves the transfer of energy. The behavior of this energy transfer varies with the particular medium of transport and energy form. Mechanical waves travel in a material medium, such as water or a string. General Wave Properties.

Physics of Wave Phenomena was published first in as an international topical supplement to the well-known Bulletin of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Physics.

Since the journal is published under the current title, which best reflects its scope. PEER REVIEW. Physics of Wave Phenomena is a peer reviewed journal. The key di↵erence between a wave in some medium and the examples of §4 is that wave phenomena are typically associated with propagation media (stone, water, air, etc.) which are modeled as continuous rather than discrete.

That distance, usually called the mean free path, is the relevant length scale for separating the different regimes of wave phenomena. Select 2 - Quantum and Classical Waves.
