This book aims to give a thorough grounding in the mathematical tools necessary for research in acoustics. Twelve authors, all highly-respected researchers in the field of acoustics, provide a comprehensive introduction to mathematical analysis and its applications in acoustics, through material developed for a summer school in mathematics for acoustics researchers funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.Mathematical Methods, Wave Motion, Aeroacoustics and Signal Processing are covered in fourteen chapters by authors including Keith Attenborough (Hull), John Chapman (Keele), Trevor Cox (Salford), Chris Linton and Maureen McIver (Loughborough), and Nigel Peake (Cambridge). There are worked examples, exercises and suggestions for further reading where appropriate. This book is suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in acoustics and will form an important reference source for researchers in the field.
