This is a text on vibrations and waves for an introductory college physics class. The treatment is algebra-based, with optional sections of calculus applications. This book is part of the Light and Matter series of introductory physics textbooks.
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 Stephen Kirkup - Integrated Sound Software
The book is an introduction to the boundary element method (BEM) and its application to acoustic problems. Software implementing the methods is available. Examples of realistic application illustrate the potential of the BEM in acoustic simulation.
