The study of the functioning of musical instruments requires knowledge of various branches of mechanics, such as linear and nonlinear vibrations and radiation of strings, plates, bars, membranes, air columns, including the self-sustained oscillations of such systems and fluid mechanics. The aim of this book is to give a systematic account of these phenomena in the context of musical instruments, insisting more on the physical and mathematical methods used to obtain simplified models than on details of the behaviour of particular instruments or specific models.
