Geophysics Problem of the Week--Mineral physics and the 1-Di Harmonic Oscillator

Here are some of my class notes for graduate geophysics.

This lecture is the connection between the previous lecture's review of Earth mineralogy to the next lecture's discussion of stress & strain on the way to deriving the seismic wave equation.

Any comments/questions/additions/subtractions/corrections are welcome. The material can branch out in many different directions from this starting point.

  1. I already had to fix an error: seismic wave velocities are km/sec not m/sec.
