Mathematics of Waves
Mathematical Properties of Waves
Waves have certain unique mathematical properties, which require some specific methods of analysis. Here you'll learn everything you need about amplitude, frequency, wavelength and other wave properties.
Interference, Diffraction, & the Principle of Superposition
Interference and diffraction are caused by the principle of superposition, which governs the rules for wave interactions. These concepts are crucial to many areas of physics, which are represented in wave form.
We explain Huygens' Principle of wave diffraction, which is applied in many experiments with sound and light.
