Research and scientific progress are based upqn intuition coordinated with a wide theoretical knowledge, experimental skill, and a realistic sense of the limitations of technology. Only a deep insight into physical phenomena will supply the necessary skills to handle the problems that arise in acoustics. The acoustician today needs to be well acquainted with mathematics, dynamics, hydrodynamics, and physics; he also needs a good knowledge of statistics, signal processing, electrical theory, and of many other specialized subjects. Acquiring this background is a laborious task and would require the study of many different books. It is the goal of this volume to present this background in as thorough and readable a manner as possible so that the reader may turn to specialized publications or chapters of other books for further information without having to start at the preliminaries. In trying to accomplish this goal, mathematics serves only as a tool; the better our understanding of a physical phenomenon, the less mathematics is needed and the shorter and more concise are our computa tions. A word about the choice of subjects for this volume will be helpful to the reader. Even scientists of high standing are frequently not acquainted with the fundamentals needed in the field of acoustics. Chapters I to IX are devoted to these fundamentals. After studying Chapter I, which dis- cusses the units and their relationships, the reader should have no difficulty converting from one system of units to any other.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book provides a comprehensive treatment of a number of topics in acoustics and the mathematics of acoustics. It is well organized and clearly written. It clearly leans heavily to the mathematics ... . In summary, I would say that this is an excellent foundation for the mathematics of acoustics and a great reference for the mathematics applicable to particular problems in acoustics." (James K. Thompson, Noise News International, Vol. 24 (4), December, 2016)
