About this Textbook

Psychoacoustics - Facts and Models represents a comprehensive collection of data describing the processing of sound by the human hearing system. It includes quantitative relations between sound stimuli and auditory perception in terms of hearing sensations. In addition, quantitative psychoacoustic models of hearing sensations are given. The monograph contains a unique collection of data on the human hearing system as a receiver of acoustic information as well as many examples of the practical application of the results of basic research in fields such as audiology, noise evaluation, and sound engineering. Many helpful hints for the solution of practical problems will be of particular benefit to engineers, and the book as a whole should serve as an important benchmark in the field of psychoacoustics. The treatment given in this second edition has been thoroughly updated with recent results.

Reviews

 

"[The book] contains the most comprehensive collection of psychoacoustic facts and models that I know.... for advanced students, researchers and experts, it is an essential source of psychoacoustic knowledge . . . I do recommend it."

-Applied Acoustics

"This volume is no ordinary textbook, but a major landmark . . . The publication of this volume must be regarded as a major event, and the book should find a place on the shelves of every acoustician with a concern for the perception of sounds."

-Journal of Sound and Vibration

"...It can be sincerely stated that this book contributes most significantly to the distribution of expert knowledge on the auditory system to science, technology, and practice. It will without doubt have a long-lasting effect on the standing and future evolution of this scientific domain."

-Acustica

"[The book] never presents data without a great deal of thought and sense of purpose. Data are chosen to demonstrate the operation of basic perceptual models¿ It is of grate value to see how far a rigorous and systematic application of these fundamental ideas can go in explaining the richness of human auditory experience and this is the special significance of [this book]."
