How does the structure of the ear define normal auditory function and how do pathologically and surgically induced changes in the ear structure change hearing? This volume presents the results of the Euromech Colloquium on `Biomechanics of Hearing'. Attended by experts - engineers, physicists, audiologists - active in different fields of modern measurement techniques, modeling and simulation and microsurgery with applications to hearing. Common themes were the description of auditory function on the basis of mathematical models of the middle and inner ear and identification, i.e. the use of measurements of middle and inner ear function to evaluate the parameters of the suggested models for normal, pathological and reconstructed ears and to refine them in their structure. The collected papers point out the positive accomplishments that can be derived from quantitative multidisciplinary approaches to hearing science. This volume is indispensable reading for audiologists, physicians and hearing scientists interested in the mechanics and acoustics of the auditory periphery.
