  • Acoustical Imagingby Michael Halliwell; Peter N.T. Wells

    Springer US 2006; US$ 329.00

    The origin ofthe International Acoustical Imaging Symposium series can be traced to 1967, when a meeting on acoustical holography was held in C alifornia. In those days, acoustical holography was at the leading edge of research but, as the importance of this subject waned, so the title of the series was changed from Acoustical Holography to Acoustical... more...
