Acoustics is the science that studies sound, its production, transmission, and effects. This book describes the fundamentals of acoustics and some of the major applications which are dependent upon the nature of the sound that is to be produced.
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.
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.
by Horace Lamb - E. Arnold
The present treatise is devoted mainly to the dynamical aspect of sound. It is accordingly to a great extent mathematical, but the author tried to restrict himself to methods and processes which shall be as simple and direct as is possible.
