page 47, Eq. 1.69
The phase factor in the numerator should be exp( i * phi_2 ), which is logical since transmission is associated with a single passage through the layer, whereas reflection has a double passage and hence phase factor exp( 2 * i * phi_2 ). (The formula was correct in the first edition)
Shows |R|^2 not |R|. This problem might occur in some of the other plots. Fig. 2.10 has the same issue.<\p>
The caption says the plot is for an ideal waveguide. It is actually for a Pekeris waveguide with a bottom speed of 1800 m/s, bottom loss of .1 dB/wavelength, and density of 1.8 g/cm^3
The figure title indicates the TL was done at a frequency of 50 Hz. The correct frequency is 600 Hz.
Eq. (8.53 )
Should have dz^2 on the left not dz
The derivative should be a partial derivative.
Eq. (8.54) is missing “ i ” in e ^( k v t )Eqs . 8.73, 8.76, 8.80, and Eq.8.84
