Victor W. Sparrow - professor of acoustics, Penn State University Park

Book Title: Acoustics: An Introduction to its Physical Principles and Applications

Author: Allan D. Pierce

Book Description:

Acoustics is one of the most interdisciplinary topics in science and engineering, and this is one of the most important books in acoustics written in the last half century. I have used this book extensively at Penn State both in my teaching and in my research. The author previously was on the Penn State faculty in the early 1990s before moving elsewhere due to family considerations. He was an excellent mentor to me as a young faculty member, and he helped show me the ropes as to how a responsible, scholarly academic should operate.
