Abstract.Ernst Florens Friedrich Chladni, the son of the rector of the University of Wittenberg, studied law and philosophy at the Universities of Wittenberg and Leipzig, wrote a dissertation in each of these disciplines and became an experimentalist concerned with sound and vibrations. Chladni's name is associated with the Chladni figures, and this is the first real effort to experimentally investigate the nature of sound. In the lecture the publications of Chladni are presented and, cursorily…

Chladni figures for a vibrating surface are modeled by the nodals lines of the vibration modes of the surface. In this paper we review some of the known results on the nodal lines of the vibration

Chladni meets Napoleon

Abstract.Chladni belonged to those few scientists who have been able to arouse enthusiasm for their work not only in professional circles, but also in the lay public. During several journeys all over

Nodal portraits of quantum billiards: Domains, lines, and statistics

We present a comprehensive review of the nodal domains and lines of quantum billiards, emphasizing a quantitative comparison of theoretical findings to experiments. The nodal statistics are shown to

Shape Recognition Based on Eigenvalues of the Laplacian

Response variation of Chladni patterns on vibrating elastic plate under electro-mechanical oscillation

Fine grain particles such as sugar, sand, salt etc. form Chladni patterns on the surface of a thin plate subjected to acoustic excitation. This principle has found its relevance in many scientific

The Stillness of the Silent Sound: A Tantric Analysis of Karlheinz Stockhausen's Aus den sieben Tagen

Marilyn Shrude, Advisor The music of German composer Karlheinz Stockhausen (August 22, 1928 – December 5, 2007) continues to be the focus of intense scholarly research. However, due to the special

Chaos in Microwave Resonators

Chaotic billiards are a paradigm of quantum chaos studied theoretically in numerous papers. In flat microwave resonators with cross-sections mimicking the billiard shape there is a one-to-one

Manipulating Standard and Inverse Chladni Patterns by Modulating Adhesive, Frictional, and Damping Forces

Particles on a plate form Chladni patterns when the plate is acoustically excited. To better understand these patterns and their possible real-world applications, I present a new analytical and

Imaging Cancer and Healthy Cell Sounds in Water by Cymascope, Followed by Quantitative Analysis by Planck-Shannon Classifier

In controlled conditions water can be used as a means of transforming sonic periodicities to water wavelet periodicities, a process that results in the production of Faraday Wave images. The present

Chladni und die Entwicklung der Akustik von 1750-1860

Die Akustik ist ein Gebiet, das erstaunlicherweise in der wissenschaftshistorischen Literatur nur relativ selten zu finden ist. Darstellungen langerer Epochen in der Entwicklung dieses Fachgebietes
