This chapter addresses the simulation of ultrasound fields that form the basis of various medical diagnostic and therapeutic applications. It aims to cover the entire spectrum of existing simulation methods by considering semianalytical methods as well as numerical methods and by dealing with both linear and nonlinear ultrasound propagation. The finite-difference, pseudospectral, and integral equation methods are treated in detail, and a comparison between the latter two methods is presented. Several simulation packages are discussed.
