Principles of Musical Acoustics, 2013 Undergraduate Lecture Notes in Physics Series
Auteur : Hartmann William M.
The mathematical level of this book assumes that the reader is familiar with elementary algebra. Trigonometric functions, logarithms and powers also appear in the book, but computational techniques are included as these concepts are introduced, and there is further technical help in appendices.
In 1981-82 Dr. Hartmann took a leave of absence to work as a visiting scientist at the Institute for Research on Acoustics and Music (IRCAM) in Paris. He subsequently served at IRCAM as acting director of acoustics (1982-1983) and, supported by a NSF-CNRS grant, as consultant (1983-1987).
Dr. Hartmann has been a fellow of the Acoustical Society of America since 1983. He was chairman of the Technical Committee on Musical Acoustics from 1980 to 1984. From 1992-1995 he served on the Society's Executive Council and was chairman of the External Affairs Administrative Council (1994-1995). He gave the Society Tutorial at the spring meeting in 1996 entitled, "Pitch, Periodicity and the Brain." He served as vice president of the Society (1998-1999) and as president (2001-2002). As president, he worked to enhance the Society's connections with allied organizations such as the Institute for Noise Control Engineering, and to expand the Society's presence internationally.
In 2001 Dr. Hartmann received the Distinguished Faculty Award from Michigan State University and the Helmholtz-Rayleigh Silver Medal from the Acoustical Society of America. He currently serves as Editor-in-Chief of Springer's Modern Acoustics and Signal Processing Series.
Discusses both the physics of sound, and the psychology and physiology of how humans perceive sound and music
Includes chapters on the tonal characteristics and physics of musical instruments
Includes end of chapter exercises and solutions
Appendices provide useful supplementary information on diverse topics such as standard piano tuning, the greek alphabet, notable composers, and trigonometric functions
Written by the author of the classic text "Signals, Sound, and Sensation"
