General considerations about physical reasons for the existence of surface acoustic waves and, in particular, shear surface acoustic waves in solids are presented. The results of calculations for various types of shear surface acoustic waves are described, and corresponding physical explanations are given.

TLDR
General existence theorems for surface waves on piezoelectric substrates are presented and it is demonstrated that for short circuit boundary conditions a surface wave solution must exist under virtually any circumstances, however, for a free surface, comparatively stringent existence conditions are required.
