Presenting a comprehensive introduction to the propagation of high-frequency body-waves in elastodynamics, this volume develops the theory of seismic wave propagation in acoustic, elastic and anisotropic media to allow seismic waves to be modelled in complex, realistic three-dimensional Earth models. The book is a text for graduate courses in theoretical seismology, and a reference for all academic and industrial seismologists using numerical modelling methods. Exercises and suggestions for further reading are included in each chapter.

Review of the hardback: 'I was impressed with the thoroughness and quality of this book and expect that it will become a core resource for the seismology, and to some extent broader geophysical community.' Eos, Transactions, American Geophysical Union Review of the hardback: 'A set of problems at the end of each chapter make the book into a fine teaching text; solutions to the problems as well as relevant MATLAB software can be found at a Cambridge University Press website. ... Fundamentals of Seismic Wave Propagation is a veritable treasure trove of seismic high-frequency forward modeling techniques. It will be a definitive reference work for a long time to come.' The Leading Edge Review of the hardback: '... mathematicians and mechanicians will certainly appreciate the author's elegant presentation of the field.' Physics Today
