Description

Preface. Fourier Transforms & Special Functions. Plane Waves. The Inverse Problem: Planar NAH. Cylindrical Waves. The Inverse Problem: Cylindrical NAH. Spherical Waves. Spherical NAH. Green Functions & the Helmholtz Integral. Index.

Key Features

  • The physics of wave propogation and sound vibration in homogeneous media
  • Acoustics, such as radiation of sound, and radiation from vibrating surfaces
  • Inverse problems, such as the theory of nearfield acoustical holography
  • Mathematics of specialized functions, such as spherical harmonics

Readership

Relying little on material outside the book, Fourier Acoustics will be invaluable as a graduate level text as well as a reference for researchers in academia and industry. The book is unique amongst acoustics texts, it is well illustrated and it includes exercises to enforce the theory.

Reviews

"Dr. Williams should be commended for clearly communicating his exceptional contributions and understanding of NAH and structural acoustics."--J. ADIN MANN III, Iowa State University, Journal of the Acoustical Society of America

"...a nice book...recommended to both students of acoustics and also to institutional libraries."--Applied Mechanics Reviews, Volume 54 (1), Jan 2001
