The affects, aesthetics, and ethics of voice in the new materialist turn, explored through encounters with creative works in media and the arts. Moved by the Aboriginal understandings of songlines or dreaming tracks, Norie Neumark's Voicetracks seeks to deepen an understanding of voice through listening to a variety of voicing/sound/voice...
Provides a state-of-the-art tool for those studying, teaching, and researching architectural acoustics.
By C. G. Vernon
Originally published in 1929, this informative textbook, aimed at school students, provides a reliable introduction on the subject of light. Offering a vibrant account of electromagnetic theory of radiation and an 'explanation of nearly all the phenomena hitherto investigated', this book presents 'an alternative approach to the subject'.
This book covers advanced topics in dynamic modeling of soil-foundation interaction, as well as the response of elastic semi-infinite media from an applications viewpoint.
Leading researchers in the interdisciplinary field of non-diffractive waves provide an historic overview and show recent developments not only in theory but also novel experiments. These have promising applications e.g. in communication technology and bio-medical imaging.
This book reviews modern acoustics from both signal-theoretic and wave-theoretic points of view. Coverage runs from the basics of acoustics and vibration to hot topics in acoustic transfer functions and signal analysis, including a perceptual point of view.
In mathematics and physics, a soliton is a self-reinforcing solitary wave a wave packet or pulse that maintains its shape while it travels at constant speed. Solitons are caused by a cancellation of non-linear and dispersive effects in the medium. In this book, the authors discuss the interactions and theoretical...
This book introduces the the shockwave physics of condensed matter, focusing on one-dimensional uniaxial compression to show key features of the response of condensed matter to shockwave loading. Discusses a select group of current issues in shockwave physics.
