#### The Edge of Physics

Gerald Duckworth & Co 2010; US$ 8.74Why is the universe expanding at an ever faster rate? What is the nature of the 'dark matter' that makes up almost a quarter of the universe? Why does the universe appear fine-tuned for life? And are there other universes besides our own? In this timely and original book, science writer Anil Ananthaswamy sets out in search of the world's most audacious... more...

#### Acoustic Absorbers and Diffusers

CRC Press 2014; US$ 210.00Absorbers and diffusers are two of the main design tools for altering the acoustic conditions of a room, semi-enclosed spaces and the outdoor environment. Their correct use is important for delivering high quality acoustics. This unique and authoritative text describes how to effectively measure, model, design, optimise and apply diffusers and absorbers.... more...

#### Theory of Nonlinear Acoustics in Fluids

Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 189.00The aim of the present book is to present theoretical nonlinear aco- tics with equal stress on physical and mathematical foundations. We have attempted explicit and detailed accounting for the physical p- nomena treated in the book, as well as their modelling, and the f- mulation and solution of the mathematical models. The nonlinear acoustic phenomena... more...

#### Suspension Acoustics

Cambridge University Press 2005; US$ 48.00Suspension Acoustics introduces suspension physics in bubbles, droplets, and solid particles in gases and fluids. more...

#### Fundamentals of Ocean Acoustics

Springer New York 2006; US$ 189.00This book provides an up-to-date introduction to the theory of sound propagation in the ocean. The text treats both ray and wave propagation and pays considerable attention to stochastic problems such as the scattering of sound at rough surfaces and random inhomogeneities. An introductory chapter that discusses the basic experimental data complements... more...

#### Acoustics

CRC Press 2007; US$ 265.00This definitive textbook provides students with a comprehensive introduction to acoustics. Beginning with the basic physical ideas, Acoustics balances the fundamentals with engineering aspects, applications and electroacoustics, also covering music, speech and the properties of human hearing. The concepts of acoustics are exposed and applied in:... more...

#### Acoustics

Elsevier Science 1998; US$ 135.95The book is devoted to the very basis of acoustics and vibro-acoustics. The physics of the phenomena, the analytical methods and the modern numerical techniques are presented in a concise form. Many examples illustrate the fundamental problems and predictions (analytic or numerical) and are often compared to experiments. Some emphasis is put on the... more...

#### Handbook of the Speed of Sound in Real Gases

Elsevier Science 2002; US$ 1,570.00After the introductory chapters in each volume, the material in each chapter starts out with definitions and engineering formulas, applies these to the individual gases, and proceeds to advanced theory at the molecular level. The formulas and theory are illustrated with examples throughout. Uncertainty, in both measurement and prediction, is a recurring... more...

#### Theoretical And Computational Acoustics 2003

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 189.00The ICTCA conference provides an interdisciplinary forum for active researchers in academia and industry who are of varying backgrounds to discuss the state-of-the-art developments and results in theoretical and computational acoustics and related topics. The papers presented at the meeting cover acoustical problems of common interest across disciplines... more...
