From the Publisher"Overall, I liked the book, and I surely would recommend it for the library of anyone involved in advanced acoustics... I will...use it as source material."
-Victor W. Sparrow, Physics Today
Devoted to the fundamentals of acoustic and vibro-acoustics, this book presents a complete general theory of the subject in a unique, concise and logical manner. The authors have produced a very accessible text, where the eminently practical theory is fully supported by both classic analytical methods and contemporary mathematical techniques.
Audience: Graduate students and researchers in engineering and physics (acoustics, noise, and vibrations) and practitioners in the automotive and mechanical industry.
