When the first edition of this book came out in 1936 it was just over 40 years since the appearance of the second edition of Lord Rayleigh's famous treatise on sound. In the years since, Morse's book, especially in its second edition, has become the working replacement of Rayleigh's for acoustics teachers and researchers who seek a firm mathematical foundation for their work. After a brief survey of useful mathematics (up to the level of contour integration and Fourier transforms) and a thorough account of the mathematics of free and damped oscillations, the author takes the flexible string through all its motions and then stiffens it for the cases of wires and bars. Attention is then turned to the two-dimensional equivalents of these cases-membranes and plates. Thus, fully half the book is devoted to vibrations. In the second half of the book, Professor Morse treats the cases of planewave propagation in an undamped medium, propagation in tubes and horns, and then, in a masterful chapter, the radiation, and scattering of sound, finishing with a chapter on standing waves and room acoustics. Throughout the book, the mathematics is developed clearly and with rigor, and worked examples and detailed results are given. At the same time as teaching acoustics, the books can also serve as a vehicle for the study of Bessel functions, normal modes, perturbation theory, and other mathematical techniques. There is plenty of problems given in each chapter.
