A complete series of potential functions for solving the wave equations in an almost transversely isotropic media is presented. The potential functions are reduced to only one potential function particularly for axisymmetric wave propagation problems. The potential functions presented in this paper can be reduced to Lekhnitskii-Hu-Nowacki solution for elastostatics problems.
