Acoustics - Electronic Copy
W. F. Donkin;
207 pp, Electronic Copy 1884

This book was an important milestone in the development of the mathematical theory of acoustics and vibrations. Donkin was a Professor of Mathematics at Oxford and was one of Rayleigh's principal mentors during Rayleigh's postgraduate days as a Fellow at Cambridge. Donkin set out to write a comprehensive treatise on acoustics, but died at the time this first volume was completed. Rayleigh acknowledges Donkin's book in the preface to his Theory of Sound and states that he would not have needed to write his book if Donkin had lived to complete the work he set out to write. Many of the mathematical proofs in the Theory of Sound are taken from Donkin's book.

Hearing in Vertebrates: A Psychophysics Databook - Electronic Copy
Richard R. Fay;
620 pp, Electronic Copy 1988

This book presents psychophysical data on vertebrate hearing obtained from the published literature. The data presented here are in the form of new figures original to this book, and tables giving the numerical values of all plotted points. It contains separate sections on the Lateral Line System (7 figures), Fish Hearing (62 figures), Amphibians and Reptiles (16 figures), Birds (63 figures), Mammals (over 115 figures), and Comparisons among Vertebrates (13 figures). In addition to data on hearing sensitivity, discrimination, and directional hearing, data are included on hearing development and infant hearing, aspects of echolocation, and the psycho physics of electrical stimulation of the auditory system. It contains a Topical Index for each section and also combined for all vertebrates, a Species Index containing all scientific and common animal >names with references to the kinds of data available for each, complete bibliographic references (placed on the text pages displaying the data derived from them, and as a combined Bibliography), a Journal List, and an Author Index. Introductions precede each section. A Comparative Section brings together selected data from different animal groups for comparison across all vertebrates.

Introduction to the Theory of Sound Transmission with Application to the Ocean - Electronic Copy
C. B. Officer;
284 pp, Electronic Copy 2011 (originally published 1958)

The chief purpose of the book is to apply the general principles of compressional elastic wave theory in fluids to transmission in a liquid medium subject to solid and gaseous boundaries. The first chapter develops the usual general stress-strain relation for a three dimensional elastic medium and the resulting wave equation for the propagation of small disturbances from equilibrium. Chapter 2 discusses the general theory of the solution of the wave equation first in terms of rays and second in terms of normal modes. The next two chapters treat transmission in shallow and deep water, respectively, from the standpoints of both ray theory and normal mode solutions. Chapter 5 contains a treatment of a point source near a reflecting surface and other problems of reflection such as a corrugated boundary, a porous medium, three-layer reflectivity, etc. The final chapter discusses attenuation in the medium, including the usual viscosity and heat conduction mechanisms as well as diffraction and scattering effects. [Excerpted from book review, R. Bruce Lindsay, J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 31, 1273 (1959)].
