Waves of all kinds are part of our everyday life: electromagnetic waves, acoustic waves, seismic waves to name but a few. The formalisms developed for these different types of waves have made it possible to understand and predict a number of phenomena, properties and applications. The development of knowledge on waves feeds into many fields of application such as acoustics, music, photonics, remote sensing, medicine, telecommunications, defense, etc. SCIENCES covers the different thematic fields associated with each type of wave: from basic formalism to applications.
