Abstract

Computational Ocean Acoustics. Finn B. Jensen, some are covered in more detail than others. The William A. Kuperman, Michael B. Porter, and Henrik different techniques are compared to each other and Schmidt. 1994. 612 pp. $85.00. Clothbound. Ameri- often to related techniques that are in common use in can Institute of Physics. ISBN 1-56396-209-8. seismology. The four authors have made the effort to use a uniform notation throughout and to refer to each other's chapters. Computational Ocean Acoustics is a truly encyclo- Besides a detailed discussion of the unconditionally pedic compendium of numerical techniques that solve stable direct global matrix (DGM) method and com- ocean acoustic propagation problems. The techniques parisons with related techniques from seismology, the are developed directly from the theoretical founda- chapter on wavenumber integration provides a useful tions of acoustic wave propagation, and the authors service by briefly discussing the advantages and have gone to a great deal of effort to ensure that the disadvantages of each technique. The authors have reader is aware of the analytical origins of each also included several short sections covering schemes technique. The approximations made in the numerical that they know from experience do not work very well implementation
