This note presents a basic study in
seismology and the utilization of seismic waves for the study of Earth's
interior. It introduces techniques necessary for understanding of elastic wave
propagation in layered media. Topics covered includes: Stress and strain,
Relationship between stress and strain, Equation of motion, Wave equation,
d'Alembert's solution, Separation of variables, Fourier transform, Slowness,
Travel time curves, Travel time tomography, Snell's law, Critical and
post-critical reflection, Surface waves-ground roll, Normal modes, Anisotropy,
Earthquake, Focal mechanics.

The main objective of this note is to
introduce the basic knowledge on earthquake engineering. This note covers the
source mechanics of earthquake, hazards and its consequences and also covers
earthquake measurement and instrumentation.
The material is based on several textbooks, monographs and journal
articles. Though the material is clearly far from well elaborated it can be
useful for students who want to learn basics of theory of seismology. Topics
covered includes: Basic Relations Of Continuum Mechanics, Seismic Source,
Methods Of Solution Of The Equation Of Motion, Elastic Waves In Unbounded
Homogeneous Isotropic Medium, Reflection And Transmission Of Plane Waves At A
Plane Interface, Surface Waves, Seismic Response Of A System Of Horizontal
Layers Over a Halfspace To A Vertically Incident Plane SH Wave, The Ray Method.
This book covers the following Topics:
Concepts in Classical Seismology, Seismic Waves, Seismic Tomography, Theory of
Seismic Source, Retrieval of Seismic Source Parameters, Seismic Source
Parameters, Physics of Earthquakes, Earthquakes and Plate Motion.
