The authors are striving to develop principles that may open the way to get appropriate informative sounds out of future artifacts. They present novel research in perception, physics, numeral analysis, computer science, and human-machine interaction.
by J. W. S. Rayleigh - MacMillan
One of the first books in the field of acoustics, written in a very logical manner, many topics are the research results of Lord Rayleigh himself. Any acoustician who wants to understand physical principles should start with Rayleighs work.
by Dave Benson - Cambridge University Press
An introduction to the subject of music and mathematics, which includes physics, psycho-acoustics, biology, and the history of science and digital technology. It covers the structure of the human ear, Fourier analysis, musical instruments, and more.
Engineering acoustics is the study of the generation and manipulation of sound waves, from an engineering perspective. The book describes some of the fundamental principles of acoustics, it requires knowledge of calculus and differential equations.
