The interpretation into English of Academician Fedorov's ex cellent treatise on elastic wave propagation in solids has come at an opportune time. His systematic exposition of all features of this box is so much lucid and easy. the writer has long past to massive pains to improve in his mathematical historical past a constant tensor framework which acts as a unifying motif via out a few of the facets of the topic. in lots of respects his procedure will look really novel as his remedy introduces numerous strategies and parameters formerly strange to the literature of the West. huge tables within the ultimate chapters illustrate the appliance of those principles to the exist ing physique of experimental facts. The publication is either large and finished in al1 levels of the topic. staff within the fields of ultrasonic propagation and elastic homes will locate this treatise of significant curiosity and direct challenge. H. B. Huntington Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Troy, long island November 1967 v Preface to the yankee variation In getting ready this version i've got corrected numerous misprints and blunders showing within the Russian variation, yet i've got additionally incorpo rated a few titanic alterations and additions, the latter representing a few effects I and my colleagues have lately acquired and pub_ lished in Russian journals. for instance, in part 32 i've got additional a common derivation of the equation for the seetion of the wave floor by way of a symmetry aircraft for cubic, hexagonal, tetragonal, and orthorhombic crystals.
