When German U-boats threatened to starve Britain into submission by cutting off food supplies in WW2, sonar scientists and engineers worked against the clock to improve anti-submarine detection in order to defeat them, to guide the X-Craft that attacked the German battleship, KMS Tirpitz, and the craft used in the D-Day landings. There has long been - and continues to be - great interest in WW2 submarine warfare which will often focus on the craft, the men who commanded them and the equipment developed for them but the lives and endeavours of those who developed, perfected and adapted the sonar on which they depended has not been widely appreciated. Many of the personal and specific details mentioned within Sound of the Waves have never been divulged until now. Seen through the eyes of Eric, a bright young physical chemist, this memoir describes in intimate detail what life was like for the talented men and women working for the British Admiralty at Her Majesty's Anti-Submarine Experimental Establishment in Scotland and the Top Secret projects they were involved in. The scientific and technical advances achieved at the Establishment during the war years are explained in uncomplicated terms but Sound of the Waves also reveals that these scientists and engineers were not simply part of Churchill's 'army of boffins ' working in a vacuum but were ordinary people with families and interests outside of their fields of study. This very personal account of the life and research of a young scientist and his colleagues is therefore as much a social history of the war years as a history of underwater weapons in WW2. Flashbacks to Eric's childhood give a clue as to how a curious and creative mind can be nurtured and how a dyslexic child can excel in the sciences. Eric Alexander was born in South Africa in 1916. He came to England prior to the start of the Second World War. It was on gaining his doctorate at Oxford University in 1941 that he was invited to join the Admiralty as an Experimental Officer to improve anti-submarine detection devices. After the war he made his career with the Admiralty as a senior sonar scientist in Dorset, England. In 1966 he was seconded to the diplomatic service of the Foreign Office and appointed Scientific Councellor to the British Embassy in Moscow.

This is an introductory book about nonlinear waves. It focuses on two properties that various different wave phenomena have in common, the "nonlinearity" and "dispersion", and explains them in a style that is easy to understand for first-time students. Both of these properties have important effects on wave phenomena. Nonlinearity, for example, makes the wave lean forward and leads to wave breaking, or enables waves with different wavenumber and frequency to interact with each other and exchange their energies. Dispersion, for example, sorts irregular waves containing various wavelengths into gentler wavetrains with almost uniform wavelengths as they propagate, or cause a difference between the propagation speeds of the wave waveform and the wave energy. Many phenomena are introduced and explained using water waves as an example, but this is just a tool to make it easier to draw physical images. Most of the phenomena introduced in this book are common to all nonlinear and dispersive waves. This book focuses on understanding the physical aspects of wave phenomena, and requires very little mathematical knowledge. The necessary minimum knowledges about Fourier analysis, perturbation method, dimensional analysis, the governing equations of water waves, etc. are provided in the text and appendices, so even second- or third-year undergraduate students will be able to fully understand the contents of the book and enjoy the fan of nonlinear wave phenomena without relying on other books.

In this textbook a combination of standard mathematics and modern numerical methods is used to describe a wide range of natural wave phenomena, such as sound, light and water waves, particularly in specific popular contexts, e.g. colors or the acoustics of musical instruments. It introduces the reader to the basic physical principles that allow the description of the oscillatory motion of matter and classical fields, as well as resulting concepts including interference, diffraction, and coherence. Numerical methods offer new scientific insights and make it possible to handle interesting cases that can’t readily be addressed using analytical mathematics; this holds true not only for problem solving but also for the description of phenomena. Essential physical parameters are brought more into focus, rather than concentrating on the details of which mathematical trick should be used to obtain a certain solution. Readers will learn how time-resolved frequency analysis offers a deeper understanding of the interplay between frequency and time, which is relevant to many phenomena involving oscillations and waves. Attention is also drawn to common misconceptions resulting from uncritical use of the Fourier transform. The book offers an ideal guide for upper-level undergraduate physics students and will also benefit physics instructors. Program codes in Matlab and Python, together with interesting files for use in the problems, are provided as free supplementary material.
