Group Properties Of The Acoustic Differential Equation

This text is an addition to the existing literature about the symmetrical properties of sound waves. The authors clarify the algebraic and analytical nature of the dynamic acoustic problem. Operator equations which are typical for linear systems and the more general Lie method are considered, which can be applied even to nonlinear problems. The information obtained allows the reader to construct different types of analytical solutions of the different acoustic equation. The acoustic differential equation describes sound waves in elastic media. If the media is non-homogeneous then the acoustic equation is generally very complicated and its exact solutions or analytical solutions may be considered as rare. This volume applies Lie algebra and Lie group techniques to separate independent variables and obtains exact analytical solutions. Special attention is paid to homogeneous and non-homogeneous media with different symmetry properties. The full wave acoustic equation is considered as well as the so-called phase acoustic equation which arises in the short-wave approximation.
