Traveling Waves without Damping

About this Video

Discussion of systems with infinite number of degrees of freedom, in particular where the oscillators are identical, harmonic and connected only to their neighbors. Examples include a taut string or a transmission line (two parallel conductors). In this session, we discuss situations where the solution can best be described in terms of traveling or progressive waves or pulses.
