The Physics of Musical Instruments
This book presents a model of continuous systems in One Dimension: Strings and Bars in Two-Dimensional Systems, which combines free and Forced Vibrations of Simple Systems.
Acoustic systems in biology
Introduction Simple vibrators Vibrations of strings and bars Sensory hairs and otoliths Vibration of membranes, plates, and shells Acoustic waves Acoustic sources and radiation Low-frequency network
Size Effect in Heterogeneous Nucleation
Assuming a spherical nucleating particle, the effect of particle size and surface properties upon nucleation efficiency is investigated. A general result is derived which is then applied to the
The Chemical Physics of Ice
Preface 1. The water molecule 2. Structure and energy of ordinary ice 3. Other forms of ice 4. Liquid water and freezing 5. Crystal growth 6. Thermal properties and lattice dynamics 7. Point defects
Active Sites and Ice Crystal Nucleation.
Abstract The concept of active nucleation sites is examined in the light of standard nucleation theory and it is suggested that these sites are probably small re-entrant corners or jogs in growth
Autonomous vibration of simple pressure?controlled valves in gas flows
Pressure‐controlled gas‐flow valves are responsible for sound generation in woodwind and brass instruments, and in the vocalization of many animals. When only a single degree of freedom is allowed

Bird song—A quantitative acoustic model
A detailed quantitative physical model is developed which gives a successful quantitative account of the “voiced” song of birds such as ravens. Using available anatomical and physiological data, the
Nonlinear generation of missing modes on a vibrating string
The nonlinear transfer of energy among modes of different frequencies on a vibrating string is investigated both theoretically and experimentally. The nonlinearity is associated with the well‐known
