#### Das Buch der Klänge

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2015; US$ 29.99Eine Reise zu den erstaunlichsten akustischen Phänomenen der Erde ? und ein Appell, über die Rolle der Klänge in unserem Alltag neu nachzudenken. Mit dem Buch der Klänge führt uns der britische Wissenschaftler Trevor Cox in verborgene Hörwelten. Es weckt in uns das Verlangen, in einem Alltag, in dem das Visuelle so sehr dominiert, doch einmal... more...

#### Relativity

Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 26.95 US$ 21.56After completing the final version of his general theory of relativity in November 1915, Albert Einstein wrote a book about relativity for a popular audience. His intention was "to give an exact insight into the theory of relativity to those readers who, from a general scientific and philosophical point of view, are interested in the theory, but who... more...

#### 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...

#### Fundamentals of Acoustics

Wiley 2013; US$ 303.00 US$ 262.60The central theme of the chapters is acoustic propagation in fluid media, dissipative or non-dissipative, homogeneous or nonhomogeneous, infinite or limited, placing particular emphasis on the theoretical formulation of the problems considered. 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$ 48.00 US$ 39.36Suspension 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...
