The book is devoted to the very basis of acoustics and vibro-acoustics. The physics of the phenomena, the analytical methods and the modern numerical techniques are presented in a concise form. Many examples illustrate the fundamental problems and predictions (analytic or numerical) and are often compared to experiments. Some emphasis is put on the mathematical tools required by rigorous theory and reliable prediction methods.

  • A series of practical problems, which reflect the content of each chapter
  • Reference to the major treatises and fundamental recent papers
  • Current computing techniques, used in problem solving
Paul Filippi is a Directeur de Recherche at the CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) in Marseille and an editorial board memeber for the Journal of Sound and Vibration. He has been teaching courses in Acoustics in France since the early seventies, besides having studied and taught in the U.S. He received a degree in Phys...

Editorial Reviews

"Overall, I liked the book, and I surely would recommend it for the library of anyone involved in advanced acoustics... I will...use it as source material."
-Victor W. Sparrow, Physics Today
