  Group velocity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The group velocity of a wave is the velocity with which the variations in the shape of the wave's amplitude (known as the modulation or envelope of the wave) propagate through space.
The group velocity is often thought of as the velocity at which energy or information is conveyed along a wave.
This "group velocity dispersion" is an important effect in the propagation of signals through optical fibers and in the design of short pulse lasers.

 Phase velocity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The phase velocity of a wave is the rate at which the phase of the wave propagates in space.
Note that the phase velocity is not necessarily the same as the group velocity of the wave, which is the rate that changes in amplitude (known as the envelope of the wave) will propagate.
The phase velocity of electromagnetic radiation may under certain circumstances exceed the speed of light in a vacuum, but this does not indicate any superluminal information or energy transfer.

 Group Velocity Demonstration   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The quantity we commonly refer to as the "speed-of-light" is its phase velocity: the speed at which the wavefronts of a pure frequency tone travel.
The group velocity is the speed at which pulses (or "wave packets"), which are made up of a range of spectral components, travel.
The group velocity and phase velocity are the same in a vacuum, but in any other medium this is not, in general, the case.

 Phase versus Group Velocity   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
This animation shows the difference between phase velocity and group velocity in a traveling wave packet.
The phase velocity is the speed of the individual wave crests, whereas the group velocity is the speed of the wave packet as a whole (the envelope).
In this case, the phase velocity is greater than the group velocity.

Measurements of group velocity are derived from phase velocity dispersion curves and are modeled with global laterally-varying isotropic structure.
The group velocity maps from this study are compared for the area of Eurasia with the maps of Ritzwoller and Levshin [1998].
The global maps are useful for prediction of group arrival times, for revealing tectonic structures, and as a basis for regional group velocity studies.

 Encyclopedia of Laser Physics and Technology - group velocity, light, envelope
The group velocity of light in a medium is defined as the inverse of the derivative of the wavenumber with respect to angular frequency:
The group velocity is the velocity with which the envelope of a pulse propagates in a medium, assuming a long pulse with narrow bandwidth (so that higher-order chromatic dispersion is not relevant) and the absence of nonlinear effects (i.e., low enough optical intensities).
Due to dispersion, the group velocity in a medium is in general different from the phase velocity (typically smaller than the latter), and it is frequency-dependent; this effect is called group velocity dispersion.

 BBC News | SCI/TECH | Beam smashes light barrier
The group velocity of a light pulse depends upon the mixture of frequencies within the pulse and the medium through which it travels.
The important thing, however, is that whilst the group velocity can be manipulated to be faster than the speed of light, it is not possible to use this effect to send information faster than the speed of light.
Because of the fast group velocity, the leading edge of the pulse appears to leave the caesium-filled chamber 62 billionths of a second before it arrives.

 Phase, Group, and Signal Velocity
The velocity of a wave can be defined in many different ways, partly because there many different kinds of waves, and partly because we can focus on different aspects or components of any given wave.
In a medium whose refractive index is constant, independent of frequency (such as the vacuum), we have dn/dk = 0 and therefore the group velocity equals the phase velocity.
It follows that the group velocity of light in such media (called dispersive) is less than the phase velocity.

The phase velocity is fixed at 1.0 (arbitrary units).
As long as the group velocity is set equal to one, the wavepackets move at the same speed as the individual waves.
In this case the the phase velocity is twice the group velocity, so as the wave propagates the individual waves disappear at the trailing edge of the packet.

Group velocity dispersion is the frequency (or wavelength) dependence of the group velocity of light in a medium.
Group velocity dispersion is responsible for dispersive broadening of pulses and for the group velocity mismatch of different waves in parametric nonlinear interactions.

 Phase, group velocity and energy
I know the definitions of phase and group velocity from here and what they look like from here.
Essentially, the energy of a wave is dependant on the amplitude, which is why the envelope of the wave is associated with the energy of the wave rather than the rapid oscillatory component.
The group velocity thus features in equations for power flow and energy and so forth because the group velocity describes the propagation of the envelope.

A technical controversy which has significant implications for experimental testability is the one concerning the κ-Minkowski relation between group velocity and momentum.
While in these previous studies the relation between group velocity and momentum was introduced through ad hoc formulae, we rely on a direct analysis of wave propagation in κ-Minkowski.
