Editorial Reviews


"An excellent and timely book - the first textbook to provide such a detailed and complete overview on the theory of earthquake source mechanisms, and to combine the classical continuum mechanics approach with concepts of kinematic and dynamic rupture models. This book will become an essential reference and valuable resource for researchers, professionals and graduate students."
Professor Dr Torsten Dahm, Helmholtz Centre Potsdam, GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences

"This is an up-to-date, comprehensive, quantitative treatment of an important topic in seismology. It is unique in that theory and data analysis are both discussed in-depth, and it covers fundamental ideas from the 1960s to the very latest developments, making it the essential text for graduate students and researchers. Along with its very complete bibliography, it will become the Bible of the subject."
Professor Shamita Das, University of Oxford

Book Description

Presents an innovative new approach to studying source mechanisms, combining theory and observation in a unified methodology, and highlighting processing of seismological digital data and cutting-edge computer methods. An ideal guide for graduate students, researchers and professionals in seismology, tectonophysics, geodynamics, geomechanics, seismic hazard assessment and seismic engineering.

This is a great book for seismologist (graduate student, post-doc and professor). It explains the theory behind the source mechanisms in details. It is a must read book.
