This new edition of the classic text by Aki and Richards has at last been updated throughout to systematically explain key concepts in seismology. Now in one volume, the book provides a unified treatment of seismological methods that will be of use to advanced students, seismologists, and scientists and engineers working in all areas of seismology.
"An excellent study and reference book for seismologists well-grounded in the methods of mathematical physics. This updated version of Aki and Richard's classical geophysical text deserves a place in every serious geophysicist's library."
–The Leading Edge
"For more than twenty years, Aki and Richards' classic has maintained its position as the most complete and accessible text on theoretical seismology. Now brought up to date throughout, and with several completely revised chapters, this book will remain "The Bible" of the subject for years to come."
