Introduction: A fundamental property of the solutions to the continuum wave equation is the linear relationship w = ck between frequency and wave number, or, equivalently, the famous in = c relationship. The most important implication of this relationship is the following: if a certain perturbation is imposed on a medium, the perturbation travels without distortion. You have already found one such case in Problem 2, Chapter 5, where you started with a rectangular shape and watched this shape travel back a forth in a cord with speed c while remaining undistorted. Media where waves propagate without distortion are called non-dispersive.
