The Science of Sound is a lavishly illustrated, authoritative text that comprehensively covers the science of sound. Students of acoustics, speech and learning and physics will appreciate this text. Emphasis is placed on understanding the phenomena of sound, and a wide variety of topics are discussed. Physics fundamentals are presented early to allow for a branching out of topics later in the course.

About the author (1990)

Thomas D. Rossing completed his B.A. at Luther College in 1950, his M.S. and Ph.D. at Iowa State University in 1954. His dissertation was in the field of molecular physics. After graduating, he went into industrial research, and from there, he went to teaching. Currently, he is a professor at Northern Illinois University.

Professor Rossing has published more than 200 papers and ten books. He is a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America and of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He has held about a dozen research positions other than at his home institution--in national laboratories, in research universities, and in several other countries. The Acoustical Society of America awarded him the Silver Medal in Musical Acoustics.
