Title:Springer Handbook of Acoustics [electronic resource]
Author(s): ThomasD Rossing
Date:2007
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Acoustics, the science of sound, has developed into a broad interdisciplinary field encompassing the academic disciplines of physics, engineering, psychology, speech, audiology, music, architecture, physiology, neuroscience, andothers. The Springer H andbook of Acoustics is an unparalleled modern handbook reflecting this richly interdisciplinary nature edited by one of the acknowledged masters in the field, Thomas Rossing. Researchers and students benefit fromthe comprehensive contents spanning: anima l acoustics including infrasound and ultrasound, environmental noise control, music and human speech and singing, physiological and psychological acoustics, architectural acoustics, physicaland engineering acoustics, signal processing, medical acoustics, and ocean acoustics. This handbook reviews the most important areas of acoustics, with emphasis on current research. The authors of the various chapters are all expertsin their fields. Each chapter is richly illustrated with figures and tables. The latest research and applications are incorporated throughout, e.g. computer recognition and synthesis of speech, physiological acoustics, psychologicalacoustics, thermoacoustics, diagnostic imaging and therapeutic applications and acoustical oceanography. With a Foreword by Manfred R. Schroeder Key Topics Physical and Engineering Acoustics Signal Processing in Acoustics Physiologicaland Psychological Acoustics Architectural Acoustics Medical Acoustics Ocean Acoustics Environmental Noise Control Musical Acoustic s, Human Speech and Singing Animal Acoustics (Infrasound and Ultrasound) Features Contains over 960two-color illustrations. Includes over 80 comprehensive tables. Emphasizes physical concepts over extensive mathematical derivations. Delivers a wealth of u p-to-date references. Parts and chapters with summaries, detailed index andfully searchable CD-ROM guarantee quick access to data and links to other sources. Audio and video files on CD-ROM
