Fundamentals of Acoustic Signal Processing serves as an introduction to the previously published book The Nature and Technology of Acoustic Space. As a comprehensive, introductory text to modern acousticsand signal processing, it will be invaluable to students, researchers, and practitioners in industry. The book provides the fundamentals of acoustic wave theories as well as discrete signal processing. The authors have concentrated on the fundamental issues which they use in lecture courses, seminars, research, and development activities. From wave equations to discrete signal analysis, the treatment is self-contained with numerous helpful illustrations and examples. The relationship between continuous and discrete sampled data is clearly interpreted, and the origin of the sample data is readily comprehensible. Both students and engineers can reorganize their fundamental knowledge about signal processing.

Key Features

. Emphasis on the relationship between continuous and discrete signal representations.

. Coverage of prevailing trends

. High calibre data and figures.

As a comprehensive, introductory textbook to modern acoustics and signal processing, this book will be essential to students, researchers and practitioners in industry.


Undergraduates and graduates in engineering, mechanical engineering, acoustics engineering and physics. Engineers in the automotive industry, transport, aerospace, heavy machinery, and engines. Aimed at practitioners and researchers who need to grasp the fundamentals of signal processing quickly in order to develop applications in acoustic engineering.

About the Authors

Mikio Tohyama

Mikio Tohyama holds a Doctorate of Engineering from Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan. Beginning in 1975 and for the next 18 years, Dr. Tohyama worked in research projects involving acoustics, vibration, and signal processing at the Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT) Research Laboratories in Japan. From 1993 until 2003 he was professor at Kogakuin University, Tokyo, before moving to Waseda University, Tokyo, where he was professor of sound and auditory perception until 2012. In 2012 he founded a research consulting firm, Wave Science Study (WSS), which he still runs today. His present research interests are sound signature analysis oriented to sound field perception. Dr. Tohyama enjoys playing the piano every day.
