9780125069403: The Dictionary of Acoustics

This is a dictionary of terms used in acoustics. It provides in-depth and informative definitions of the terminology and concepts used in acoustics. The terms are in alphabetical order.

The science and technology of acoustics embrace an unusually wide range of disciplines, from aircraft noise reduction to ultrasonics in medicine, and from psychoacoustics to signal processing. The student of acoustics must become familiar with a corresponding range of specialist terms in order to communicate with others and to understand the literature.

Here, for the first time, in one informative dictionary, are listed authoritative definitions covering most of the relevant fields, apart from music and speech, that the practicing acoustician needs to understand.

The author has drawn on experience gained during a long career spent mostly at Southampton University's multidisciplinary Institute of Sound and Vibration Research and has been able to draw on the expertise of specialists in the various fields.

The Dictionary of Acoustics is intended as a supplementary text for students students in acoustics, in the departments of Engineering and Physics. The Dictionary of Acoustics is also a valuable quick reference for researchers engineers and physicists in industry and academia who deal with acoustics.

From the Back Cover:

The science and technology of acoustics embraces an unusually wide range of disciplines, from aircraft noise reduction to ultrasonics in medicine, and from psychoacoustics to signal processing. The student of acoustics has to become familiar with a corresponding range of specialist terms in order to communicate with others and to understand the literature. Here, in one informative dictionary, for the first time, are listed accurate and helpful definitions to provide the student-or the specialist from another discipline-with a point of entry into the world of acoustics. The dictionary's 2600 entries cover most of the essential concepts and terminology that the practicing acoustician needs to understand, outside the subfields of music and speech communication. The author has drawn on experience gained during a long career spent mostly at Southampton University's multidisciplinary Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, supplemented by the expertise and perspective of a team of subject specialists.

The Dictionary of Acoustics is:

· broad-ranging and comprehensive, covering all areas of fundamental acoustics (except terms specific to music and speech)
· multilevel in its appeal: a reference source that can be used by undergraduates as well as Ph.D.-level researchers, practitioners, and consultants
· informative, with extended definitions of important concepts and a bibliography pointing to sources for further study
· easy to use: all entries are arranged alphabetically and are thoroughly cross-referenced
· supplemented with mathematical foundations and equations to add depth to definitions
· written in consultation with 15 advisors on special topics and reviewed by acousticians of international standing

Professor Christopher Morfey has almost 40 years of experience in acoustics, both in research and as a consultant. He is currently at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, Southampton University, UK.
