by J. W. S. Rayleigh - MacMillan
One of the first books in the field of acoustics, written in a very logical manner, many topics are the research results of Lord Rayleigh himself. Any acoustician who wants to understand physical principles should start with Rayleighs work.
by Davide Rocchesso, Federico Fontana - Mondo Estremo Publishing
The authors are striving to develop principles that may open the way to get appropriate informative sounds out of future artifacts. They present novel research in perception, physics, numeral analysis, computer science, and human-machine interaction.
Engineering acoustics is the study of the generation and manipulation of sound waves, from an engineering perspective. The book describes some of the fundamental principles of acoustics, it requires knowledge of calculus and differential equations.
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.
