Before launching into a full technical summary and listing results in the next section, it is worthwhile to take a step back and view the underlying motivations for writing this thesis. The general goal of this project can be expressed as an attempt to answer, or at least address several general questions about wave digital filter and digital waveguide network numerical simulation algorithms: These were the guiding questions that the author had in mind throughout this project; all the results have some bearing on their answers. The impatient reader can flip to §6.1 for these answers--some clear-cut, some much less so.
