Abstract:

[This book] was written for an introductory course in acoustics for nonscientists. A background in neither physics nor mathematics above high-school algebra is required ... [The book] present[s] the basic physics essential for virtually all topics throughout the text: simple harmonic motion, wave principles, resonance, standing waves, the overtone series, Fourier synthesis, and spectrum analysis ... [The book] illustrate[s] these principles and [is] of general interest to the musician and nonmusician alike ... [It covers] sound reproduction ... room acoustics ... modern synthesizers ... [and] digital recording technology ... [The book then] treats different aspect[s] of musical acoustics ... [The book also] treat[s] the historical development of instruments, paying particular attention to acoustical developments. [The authors also] relate the physical principles of contemporary instruments to performance technique ...-Pref.
