  • Fundamentals of Shallow Water Acousticsby Boris Katsnelson; Valery Petnikov; James Lynch

    Springer 2012; US$ 179.00

    Shallow water acoustics (SWA), the study of how low and medium frequency sound propagates and scatters on the continental shelves of the worlds oceans, has both technical interest and a large number of practical applications. Technically, shallow water poses an interesting medium for the study of acoustic scattering, inverse theory, and propagation... more...

  • Analytic Methods of Sound Field Synthesisby Jens Ahrens

    Springer 2012; US$ 159.00

    This book puts the focus on serving human listeners in the sound field synthesis although the approach can be also exploited in other applications such as underwater acoustics or ultrasonics. The author derives a fundamental formulation based on standard integral equations and the single-layer potential approach is identified as a useful tool in order... more...

  • Soundsby Casey O'Callaghan

    Oxford University Press 2007; US$ 29.99

    Vision dominates philosophical thinking about perception, and theorizing about experience in cognitive science has traditionally focused on a visual model. In a radical departure from established practice, Casey O'Callaghan provides a systematic treatment of sound and sound experience, and shows how thinking about audition and appreciating the... more...

  • Auralizationby Michael Vorlander

    Springer 2007; US$ 239.00

    In acoustics, auralization, which means being analogue to the technique of "visualization", takes place when acoustic effects, primary sound signals or means of sound reinforcement, are processed to be presented by using electro-acoustic equipment. This book presents the basics, methodology and strategies of acoustic simulation and auralization. more...
