Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Principles of Musical Acoustics focuses on the basic principles in the science and technology of music. Musical examples and specific musical instruments demonstrate the principles. The book begins with a study of vibrations andwaves, in that order. These topics constitute the basic physical properties of sound, one of two pillars supporting the science of musical acoustics. The second pillar is the human element, the physiological and psychological aspectsof acoustical science. The perceptual topics include loudness, pitch, tone color, and localization of sound. With these two pillars in place, it is possible to go in a variety of directions. The book treats in turn, the topics of roomacoustics, audio both analog and digital, broadcasting, and speec h. It ends with chapters on the traditional musical instruments, organized by family. The mathematical level of this book assumes that the reader is familiar withelementary algebra. Trigonometric functions, logarithms and powers also appear in the book, b ut computational techniques are included as these concepts are introduced, and there is further technical help in appendices

Title:The Physics of Music and Color [electronic resource]
Author(s): Leon Gunther
Date:2012
Edition:1
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The Physics of Music and Color deals with two subjects, music and color - sound and light in the physically objective sense - in a single volume. The basic underlying physical principles of the two subjects overlap greatly: bothmusic and color are ma nifestations of wave phenomena, and commonalities exist as to the production, transmission, and detection of sound and light. This book aids readers in studying both subjects, which involve nearly the entire gamutof the fundamental laws of classical as we ll as modern physics. Where traditional introductory physics and courses are styled so that the basic principles are introduced first and are then applied wherever possible, this book is basedon a motivational approach: it introduces a subject by demonstr ating a set of related phenomena, challenging readers by calling for a physical basis for what is observed. The book is based upon a course on the physics of music andcolor that has been taught at Tufts University since 1973, when the course was introduce d by Gary Goldstein and the author. Topics that are unusual for a book at this level and breadth include: a detailed non-mathematical summary ofthe principles of electricity and magnetism with the goal of understanding the basis for various audio devices as well as the physical essence of light and how it propagates as a wave extensive details on the calculation of colorcoordinates from a spectral intensity with different choices of primaries the relationship between color coordinates on a computer and th e color seen on a monitor. References to recent developments include the connection between theblueness of the ocean and the psycho-acoustic perception of combination tones in a sound wave. A major goal is to provide an understanding of basic principles, both conceptual and quantitative, that will allow the reader to haveincreased awareness of audial and visual experiences and to understand phenomena not discussed in the book.

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Professor Yoichi Ando, acoustic architectural designer of the Kirishima International Concert Hall in Japan, presents a comprehensive rational-scientific approach to designing performance spaces. His theory is based on systematicpsychoacoustical obse rvations of spatial hearing and listener preferences, whose neuronal correlates are observed in the neurophysiology of the human brain. A correlation-based model of neuronal signal processing in the centralauditory system is proposed in which temporal sen sations (pitch, timbre, loudness, duration) are represented by an internal autocorrelation representation, and spatial sensations (sound location, size, diffuseness related toenvelopment) are represented by an internal interaural crosscorrelation function . Together these two internal central auditory representations account for the basic auditory qualities that are relevant for listening to music and speechin indoor performance spaces. Observed psychological and neurophysiological commonalities between au ditory and visual sensations and preference patterns are presented and discussed. This book thus spans the disciplines of physics,acoustics, psychology, neurophysiology, and music production, thereby blending science, engineering, and art

Title:Turbulence Nature and the Inverse Problem [electronic resource]
Author(s): L. N Pyatnitsky
Date:2009
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Hydrodynamic equations well describe averaged parameters of turbulent steady flows, at least in pipes where boundary conditions can be estimated. The equations might outline the parameters fluctuations as well, if entry conditionsat current boundarie s were known. This raises, in addition, the more comprehensive problem of the primary perturbation nature, noted by H.A. Lorentz, which still remains unsolved. Generally, any flow steadiness should be supported bypressure waves emitted by some external so urce, e.g. a piston or a receiver. The wave plane front in channels quickly takes convex configuration owing to Rayleigh's law of diffraction divergence. The Schlieren technique and pressurewave registration were employed to investigate the wave interacti on with boundary layer, while reflecting from the channel wall. The reflection induces boundary-layer local separation and following pressure rapid increase within theperturbation zone. It propagates as an acoustic wave packet of spherical shape, bearing oscillations of hydrodynamic parameters. Superposition of such packets forms a spatio-temporal field of oscillations fading as 1/r. This implies amechanism of the turbulence. Vorticity existing in the boundary layer does not penetrate in itself into poten tial main stream. But the wave leaving the boundary layer carries away some part of fluid along with frozen-in vorticity. Thevorticity eddies form another field of oscillations fading as 1/r2. This implies a second mechanism of turbulence. Thereupon the o scillation spatio-temporal field and its randomization development are easy computed. Also, normalburning transition into detonation is explained, and the turbulence inverse problem is set and solved as applied to plasma channels created by laser Besselia n beams

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Acoustics and the Performance of Music connects scientific understandings of acoustics with practical applications to musical performance. Of central importance are the tonal characteristics of musical instruments and the singingvoice including detai led representations of directional characteristics. Furthermore, room acoustical concerns related to concert halls and opera houses are considered. Based on this, suggestions are made for musical performance.Included are seating arrangements within the or chestra and adaptations of performance techniques to the performance environment. In the presentation we dispense with complicated mathematical connections and deliberately aim forconceptual explanations accessible to musicians, particularly for conductor s. The graphical representations of the directional dependence of sound radiation by musical instruments and the singing voice are unique. Since the firstedition was published in 1978, this book has been completely revised and rewritten to include current research. This translation corresponds to the latest (fifth) German edition (2004), which has become a standard reference work foraudio engineers and scientists. Acoustics and the Performance of Music addresses issues that are of interest to acousticians , orchestra performers and conductors, audio engineers, architects. Researchers and students of musicalacoustics will also find this text valuable

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:When one listens to music at home, one would like to have an acoustic impression close to that of being in the concert hall. Until recently this meant elaborate multi-channelled sound systems with 5 or more speakers. Buthead-related stereophony achie ves the surround-sound effect in living rooms with only two loudspeakers. By virtue of their slight directivity as well as an electronic filter the limitations previously common to two-speaker systems canbe overcome and this holds for any arbitrary two-ch annel recording. The book also investigates the question of how a wide and diffuse sound image can arise in concert halls and shows that the quality of concert halls decisively dependson diffuse sound images arising in the onset of reverberation. For this purpose a strong onset of reverberation is modified in an anechoic chamber by electroacoustic means. Acoustics and Hearing proposes ideas concerning signalprocessing in the auditory system that explain the measured results and the resultant sound effects pleasing to the audience

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume presents the Proceedings of the Seventh International Conference on Vibration Problems, held in Istanbul, Turkey, 05-09 September 2005. As with the earlier conferences in the ICOVP series, the purpose of ICOVP-2005 wasto bring together sc ientists with different backgrounds, actively working on vibration-related problems of engineering both in theoretical and applied fields. The main objective did not lie, however, in reporting specific results assuch, but rather in joining/exchanging diff erent languages, questions and methods developed in the respective disciplines, and to thus stimulate a broad interdisciplinary research. The topics, indeed, vary from the effect of groundmotion on the stochastic response of suspension bridges to coupling effects between different vibrations in rotor-blade systems. All lectures delivered at the Conference are recorded in their full text. Audience: Scientists,researchers and graduate students in physics and engineering

Note:Wave propagation in random media is an interdisciplinary field that has emerged from the need in physics and engineering to model and analyze wave energy transport in complex environments. This book gives a systematic andself-contained presentation o f wave propagation in randomly layered media using the asymptotic theory of ordinary differential equations with random coefficients. The first half of the book gives a detailed treatment of wave reflectionand transmission in one-dimensional random media, after introducing gradually the tools from partial differential equations and probability theory that are needed for the analysis. The second half of the book presents wave propagationin three-dimensional randomly layered media along with several applica tions, primarily involving time reversal. Many new results are presented here for the first time. The book is addressed to students and researchers in appliedmathematics that are interested in understanding how tools from stochastic analysis can be used t o study some intriguing phenomena in wave propagation in random media. Parts of the book can be used for courses in which random media andrelated homogenization, averaging, and diffusion approximation methods are involved

Title:Nonlinear Smoothing and Multiresolution Analysis [electronic resource]
Author(s): Carl Rohwer
Date:2005
Publisher:Basel : Birkhuser Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This monograph presents a new theory for analysis, comparison and design of nonlinear smoothers, linking to established practices. Although a part of mathematical morphology, the special properties yield many simple, powerful andilluminating results leading to a novel nonlinear multiresolution analysis with pulses that may be as natural to vision as wavelet analysis is to acoustics. Similar to median transforms, they have the advantages of a supporting theory,computational simplicity, remarkable cons istency, full trend preservation, and a Parceval-type identity. Although the perspective is new and unfamiliar to most, the reader can verify all the ideas and results with simple simulations ona computer at each stage. The framework developed turns out t o be a part of mathematical morphology, but the additional specific structures and properties yield a heuristic understanding that is easy to absorb for practitioners in thefields like signal- and image processing. The book targets mathematicians, scienti sts and engineers with interest in concepts like trend, pulse, smoothness and resolution in sequences

Title:Voice and Speech Quality Perception [electronic resource] : Assessment and Evaluation
Author(s): Ute Jekosch
Date:2005
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Foundations of Voice and Speech Quality Perception starts out with the fundamental question of: How do listeners perceive voice and speech quality and how can these processes be modeled? Any quantitative answers requiremeasurements. This is natural f or physical quantities but harder to imagine for perceptual measurands. This book approaches the problem by actually identifying major perceptual dimensions of voice and speech quality perception,defining units wherever possible and offering paradigms to position these dimensions into a structural skeleton of perceptual speech and voice quality. The emphasis is placed on voice and speech quality assessment of systems inartificial scenarios. Many scientific fields are involved. This book bridges the gap be tween two quite diverse fields, engineering and humanities, and establishes the new research area of Voice and Speech Quality Perception

Note:Hydronamics of Explosion presents the research results for the problems of underwater explosions and contains a detailed analysis of the structure and the parameters of the wave fields generated by explosions of cord and spiralcharges, a description of the formation mechanisms for a wide range of cumulative flows at underwater explosions near the free surface, and the relevant mathematical models. Shock-wave transformation in bubbly liquids, shock-waveamplification due to collision and focusing, and the formation of bubble detonation waves in reactive bubbly liquids are studied in detail. Particular emphasis is placed on the investigation of wave processes in cavitating liquids,which incorporates the concepts of the strength of real liquids containin g natural microinhomogeneities, the relaxation of tensile stress, and the cavitation fracture of a liquid as the inversion of its two-phase state under impulsive(explosive) loading. The problems are classed among essentially nonlinear processes that occur under shock loading of liquids and may be of interest to researchers in physical acoustics, mechanics of multiphase media, shock-waveprocesses in condensed media, explosive hydroacoustics, and cumulation

Title:The Physics of Birdsong [electronic resource]

Date:2005
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In recent years birdsong has developed into an extremely interesting problem for researchers in several branches of the scientific community. The reason is that of the approximately 10,000 species of birds known to exist, some4000 share with humans ( and just a few other species in the animal kingdom) a remarkable feature: their acquisition of vocalization requires a certain degree of exposure to a tutor. Between the complex neural architecture involved inthe process and the song itself, stands a deli cate apparatus that the bird must control with incredible precision. This book deals with the physical mechanisms at work in the production of birdsong, the acoustic effects that the avianvocal organ is capable of generating, and the nature of the neural instructions needed to drive it. The book provides fascinating reading for physicists, biologists and general readers alike
