Auralization is the technique of creation and reproduction of sound on the basis of computer data. With this tool it is possible
to predict the character of sound signals which are generated at the source and modified by reinforcement, propagation and
transmission in systems such as rooms, buildings, vehicles or other technical devices. This book is organized as a comprehensive
collection of the basics of sound and vibration, acoustic modelling, simulation, signal processing and audio reproduction.
With some mathematical prerequisites, the readers will be able to follow the main strategy of auralization easily and work
out their own implementations of auralization in various fields of application in architectural acoustics, acoustic engineering,
sound design and virtual reality. For readers interested in basic research, the technique of auralization may be useful to
create sound stimuli for specific investigations in linguistic, medical, neurological and psychological research, and in the
field of human-machine interaction.
