Summary "The book presents novel analytical and numerical models of waves in structured elastic media, with emphasis on the asymptotic analysis of phenomena such as dynamic anisotropy, localisation, filtering and polarisation as well as on the modelling of photonic and phononic/platonic crystals. Can we bend a wave? How to avoid rattle and shake in a building or a long bridge? Can a dinner table act as an earthquake protection resonator? (It would not work as a dinner table though on that occasion.) Cloaking - what is it? These and many other fascinating questions may attract a potential reader to this book."--Provided by publisher
