  • Offers a multidisciplinary look at the signal processing that underpins most of modern acoustics
  • Provides a wide range of perspectives throughout the field of acoustics with over 100 authors
  • Focuses on how signal processing is used to deal with problems in acoustics
  • Serves as a practical complement to existing textbooks and reference material on generic signal processing
  • Includes individual chapters with a self-contained nature and structure that lends itself to electronic publishing and browsing
  • Contains extensive index and references

The Handbook of Signal Processing in Acoustics presents signal processing as it is practiced in the field of acoustics. The Handbook is organized by areas of acoustics, with recognized leaders coordinating the self-contained chapters of each section. It brings together a wide range of perspectives from over 100 authors to reveal the interdisciplinary nature of signal processing in acoustics. Success in acoustic applications often requires juggling both the acoustic and the signal processing parameters of the problem. This handbook brings the key issues from both into perspective and is complementary to other reference material on the two subjects. It is a unique resource for experts and practitioners alike to find new ideas and techniques within the diversity of signal processing in acoustics.
