^{2.5} *Digitizing*a system generally means converting it from continuous-time to discrete-time form.

^{2.8} - It is interesting to note that in the
development of
*quantum mechanics*in the early 1900s, it was necessary to replace deterministic Newtonian dynamics with a*probabilistic*model. In quantum mechanics, probability distributions may follow deterministic trajectories as in Newtonian mechanics (see, for example, Schrödinger's equation), but they are only probability distributions, so there is no deterministic ``clock works'' at the smallest physical scales. We are fortunate to be able to use Newtonian dynamics with such great accuracy. Our difficulty will be complexity, not randomness. Paradoxically, the typical way to deal with overwhelming complexity is to model it as random (*e.g.*, filtered white noise).. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

^{2.9} - As discussed in §1.3.6, only velocity
is
needed for the state variable of a mass, since a mass moving in one
dimension has only one degree of freedom (with energy
).
However, since it is physically reasonable to expect both velocity
and position to be needed for the state of a point mass, let's
``play that out'' and see how it goes. This also gives us a simple

^{3.2} - In the code of Fig.2.10, the first executable line
changes the global STK sampling-rate from 44100 Hz (the default) to
that of the input soundfile. If this is not done, there is a hidden
sampling-rate conversion using linear interpolation when the input
file is read, if its sampling rate is different from the global STK
sampling-rate. This default rate conversion could alternatively be

^{3.5} - The signs may differ, however. For

^{3.6} - Newton's third law states that ``every
action produces an equal and opposite reaction.'' Therefore, every
``physical'' signal connection must be
*bidirectional*, in order to model both the applied force and the equal reaction force, or ``loading effect''. Bidirectional signal connections are typically called*ports*. A ``port'' (one physical connection point) in electrical circuit theory consists of two variables, typically voltage and current. In acoustics, corresponding port variables would be pressure and velocity. As discussed later (*e.g.*, for Wave Digital Filters in Appendix F), a simple 2x2 matrix linear transformation converts ``force and flow'' port variables, such as these, to ``traveling-wave component'' port variables.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

^{3.8} - This follows years of standard practice in analog
electric circuit design using
*voltage transfer interconnections*. For ``voltage transfer'' from one circuit-stage to another with minimized loading effects, output impedances are made as low as practical, while input impedances are set very high. For example, in analog synthesizers built during the 1970s, input impedances were typically around 100 times output impedances (*e.g.*, 100K and 1K Ohms, respectively in a typical op-amp circuit) [205].. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

^{4.3} - A simple proof for rectangular rooms can be based on
considering a single spherical wave produced from a point source in
the room. Imagine tesselating all of 3D space with copies of the
original room (minus the source), all in the same orientation. As
the spherical wave expands, it intersects a number of rooms that is
roughly proportional to its radius squared. Since the radius is
proportional to time for an expanding spherical wavefront (
),
the number of rooms containing a wave section grows as
. By
adding all the rooms together (flipping every other one along
and
), we obtain the acoustic field in the original reverberant
room at time
, for the case of lossless wall reflections of
pressure waves. (This is the dual of the usual
*image method*for computing the impulse response of a room [11].) Since each wave-section traverses each point exactly once in each room image (disregarding reflections, which are accounted for by different room images), the number of echoes at any point in the room during the time it takes a plane wave to traverse the room is very close to the number of wave sections in the room at the beginning of that time interval. Incidentally, this construction gives, in the limit as , a derivation and vivid visualization of the*diffuse field*--the superposition of equal-amplitude traveling plane-waves arriving from all directions and having uniformally distributed random arrival phase [352,47].. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

*e.g.*, [352, pp. 284-286])

where denotes the th harmonic frequency (radian/meter) of the fundamental standing wave in the direction ( being the length of the room along ), and similarly for the and directions. Thus, the mode frequencies of a room can be enumerated on a uniform 3D Cartesian grid indexed by . The grid spacings along , , and are taken to be , , and , respectively. From Eq.(3.1), the spatial frequency of mode is given by the*distance*from the origin of the grid to the point indexed by . Therefore, the number of room modes having spatial frequency between and is equal to the number of grid points lying in the spherical annulus between radius and . Since the grid is uniform, this number grows as .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

^{4.5} - One definition of when
*late reverberation*begins is when it begins to look*Gaussian*, since a random sum of plane waves uniformly distributed over all angles of arrival yields a Gaussian distributed pressure field. (The fact that late reverberation in a rectangular room always approaches the*diffuse field*--a superposition of plane waves traveling in all directions can be seen from the ``image-method dual'' argument in §3.2.1.) One way to test for Gaussianness is to form a*histogram*of impulse response sample values over a finite window (say 10ms, or roughly 500 samples), and compare the normalized histogram to a standard Gaussian bell curve computed using the measured sample variance. A threshold can be placed on , or some number of higher order sample moments can be compared. A simpler test is to determine when roughly 30% of the samples in a frame have magnitude larger than one standard deviation ( ) [3], since the probability of this occurring in truly Gaussian sequences is erf , where erf denotes the ``error function'' (integral from to of the Gaussian probability density function with normalized variance ). For a zero-mean signal , the sample standard deviation is given by the root-mean-square (RMS level). Another desired property of ``late reverb'' is that the remaining energy in the impulse response (Schroeder's*Energy Decay Curve*(EDC) [416]), has begun what appears to be an exponential decay. This can be ascertained by fitting an exponential to the EDC using,*e.g.*, Prony's method.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

^{5.1} - A causal IIR filter can be used for random-access table
lookup by simply starting the filter at a point sufficiently far
away in the table and ``running it'' until it reaches steady-state
at the desired interpolation point. While this requires at least as
many multiply-adds as an FIR filter spanning the same duration, the
number of IIR filter coefficients can be much less than the number
of FIR filter coefficients required. IIR interpolators are therefore

^{6.1} - Flanging was apparently invented independently several
times. According to
`http://www.geofex.com/Article_Folders/phasers/phase.html`, the flanging technique was discovered by Phil Spectre in the 1950s in the context of trying to ``thicken'' a vocal track by summing two copies of a track variably delayed in this way. His first use of flanging as an*effect*is said to be in his song ``The Big Hurt''. According to historian Mark Lewisohn [288], as summarized at`http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flanging`(accessed March 28, 2010), the term ``flanging'' was coined by John Lennon of the Beatles to describe what EMI engineer Ken Townsend called ``Artificial Double Tracking'' (ADT). ADT was said to be developed by Townsend in response to John Lennon's request to try to eliminate the work of recording vocal tracks twice in order to ``double'' them. George Martin has said to have explained the effect as follows: ``Now listen, it's very simple. We take the original image and we split it through a double-bifurcated sploshing flange with double negative feedback.'' [288]. This suggests that negative regenerative feedback was used in the original stereo flanging technique (§2.6.2). The first Beatles track using flanging is said to have been ``Tomorrow Never Knows'' on the Revolver album (recorded April 6, 1966). Perhaps the most obvious early example of flanging was in the popular song ``Itchykoo Park'' by The Small Faces (1967); this instance is said to have originated with engineer George Chkiantz at Olympic Studios in London. The song featured a foreground drum-roll on a snare with strong flanging throughout, and the vocals were flanged as well.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

- ... inversion:
^{7.3} - All wave phenomena involve two physical state
variables--one force-like and the other velocity-like. When one of
these variables reflects from a termination with a sign inversion, the
other reflects with no sign inversion, and vice versa. In acoustic
systems, the force-like variable is pressure, and the velocity-like
variable is either particle velocity (in open air) or volume velocity
(in acoustic tubes), as described in §6.2 above. In
electromagnetic systems, the state variables are electric and magnetic
field strengths or voltage and current. In a mass-spring oscillator,
we may choose the velocity and acceleration of the mass as the
coordinates of our state space, or position and velocity. For
transverse waves on vibrating strings, it is usually preferable to use
force and velocity waves as described above.

^{8.3} - We say that the driving point of every mechanical
system must ``looks like a mass'' at sufficiently high frequency
because every mechanical system has at least some mass, and the
driving-point impedance of a mass goes to infinity with frequency.
However, in a completely detailed model, the contact force between
objects should really be the
*Coulombe force*, which ``looks like a spring''. In other words, mechanical interactions are ultimately*electromagnetic*interactions, and it is theoretically possible for a driving force on an atom to be so small and fast that it can vibrate the outermost electron orbital without moving the nucleus appreciably, thus ``looking like a spring'' in the high-frequency limit. We will not be concerned with atomic-scale models in this book, and will persist in treating masses and springs in idealized form.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

^{9.5} - The
*strictly proper*constraint is natural in practice because the frequency responses of typical real-world systems generally roll off at least -6 dB per octave. Notice that Eq.(8.1) becomes as , which is a dB/octave roll off. Setting and yields a dB/octave roll-off, and so on. However, this depends on the physical units chosen for the input and output signals of the system. For example, consider an ideal nonzero mass driven by a force; while the resulting velocity and displacement go to zero as frequency goes to infinity (for any finite applied force), the acceleration does not roll off, being proportional to applied force by Newton's 2nd law.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

``causal frequency response''
is the Fourier transform of

^{9.10} - Since convex functions bulge upward, like
the top of a circle, it makes sense to

^{9.12} - Octave's

- ...
^{9.13} - When working with
`invfreqz`, it is often helpful to multiply the desired spectrum by a linear phase term [452] corresponding to an added delay in the impulse response [432]. The filter designed by`invfreqz`will typically be stable if sufficient delay is added to the desired frequency response in this way. Thus, if a filter designed by`invfreqz`is found to be unstable, multiply the desired frequency response by a steeper negative-slope linear-phase term and repeat the design.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

^{9.19} - These remarks apply to playback of the

taken into account. However, to a first approximation, the string
filtering is like a ``sampling'' of the excitation spectrum, with a
gentle roll-off at high frequencies due to the lowpass loop
filtering. Also, the string is a highly variable filter with many
settings. It is therefore reasonable to ignore the string filtering
when determining an optimal preemphasis for excitation-table
quantization.

On a log-log plot, the amplitude response may be approximated by a slope-zero line at height from dc to , followed by an intersecting line with negative slope of 20 dB per decade for all higher frequencies. At the break frequency, the true gain is down 3 dB from , but far away from the break frequency, the piecewise-linear approximation is very accurate. Such a plot of the log-frequency-response versus log-frequency (the real part being log-magnitude and the imaginary part being phase, plotted separately) is called a*Bode plot*.

^{A.20} - The Karplus-Strong U.S. patent 4,649,783A,
``Wavetable-modification instrument and method for generating musical
sound,'' has the following abstract: A musical instrument employing
probabilistic wavetable-modification method of producing musical
sound. A randomly initialized wavetable which is periodically accessed
to provide an output signal which determines the musical sound. The
output signal from the wavetable is probabilistically modified and
stored back into the wavetable as modified data. The modified data,
after a delay, is accessed from the wavetable and thereby becomes a
new output signal. This process is periodically repeated whereby each
new output signal is stored (after possibly being modified) back into
the wavetable to produce rich and natural musical sound.

simple
^{B.1} - While this formula seems fairly simple now, in
Newton's day, it was necessary to invent
*calculus*before it could be stated in this way.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

- ... constant.
^{B.2} - The gravitation constant is given in
*International Standard Units (``SI units'')*by

where the following

*physical units*abbreviations are used:

The physical units for newtons follow from Newton's second law of motion , and the physical units for follow immediately from Eq.(B.2).

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

- ...force|textbf.
^{B.3} - From
a modern point of view, all forces are ``mediated'' by some particle,
and there are only four basic forces: The
*electromagnetic force*is mediated by the*photon*, the*strong nuclear force*is mediated by the*gluon*, the*weak nuclear force*is mediated by the and bosons, and*gravity*is thought to be mediated by the*graviton*, although gravity is not yet incorporated into the*Standard Model*of theoretical physics. Only the electromagnetic and gravitational forces are encountered in everyday life, since the strong and weak nuclear forces decay exponentially on the scale of an atomic nucleus.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

- ... force.
^{B.4} - In this example, the
mass-spring system is in
*equilibrium*(not moving), so all forces in the system must sum to zero. Equilibrium also must hold if the whole system is traveling with a constant velocity; in other words, it is the lack of*relative*motion that matters.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

- ... displacements.
^{B.5} - To show
this quantitatively, consider two electrons, each having electric
charge
, separated by
meters. Then the Coulomb force between
the electrons is proportional to
. Adding a small
perturbation
to
yields a new force proportional to
*binomial expansion*to obtain the approximation. (The notation means ``terms order of '', and such terms approach zero as fast as approaches zero.) Thus, the effective spring constant connecting the two electrons is , when .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

- ...
yielding
^{B.6} - A more formal methodology for arriving
at differential equations by applying Newton's law and Hooke's law is
described in Appendix F. In the present example, consideration of the
underlying physics should convince you that the signs in Eq.(B.4)
are correct. For example, when
is positive, the spring must push
the mass back to the left. Therefore,
means the mass
will be accelerated to the left.

^{B.7} - See,
*e.g.*, [452, p. 313-316] for a derivation, and Appendix F, specifically §F.3.6, for related analysis.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

- ...
object.
^{B.8} - In SI units,
*work*is in units called*joules*(abbreviated J ). Thus, joules are newtons times meters. Power in watts is defined as joules per second. One joule is the energy dissipated in one second by an electric current of one ampere (coulomb per second) through a resistance of one ohm. For a list of physical units and their abbreviations, see, for example,`http://physics.nist.gov/cuu/Units/units.html`.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

- ... considered.
^{B.9} - Ok, there
*does*exist energy fluctuation on the scale of ``Heisenberg uncertainty''. That is, it is possible to have a violation in energy conservation by an amount over a time duration , provided is sufficiently small (on the order of Planck's constant ). This can be considered a form of the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

- ...
general.
^{B.10} - Conservation of energy and momentum are unified in
what is called the ``four-momentum'' of spacetime,
,
often used in special relativity calculations (see,
*e.g.*,`http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four-momentum`). Thus, energy (divided by the speed of light ) is just the 0th component of the four-momentum.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

- ... space.
^{B.11} - Additionally, mechanics problems are
formulated using the
*principle of least action*, in which the*action*is defined as the time integral of the*Lagrangian*(usually the kinetic energy minus potential energy). Equations of motion, including Newton's second law, are obtained by finding the path which minimizes this action integral. The two main resulting formulations for the equations of motion (in addition to Newton's formulation) are called the*Lagrangian*and*Hamiltonian*formulations, and they generalize more cleanly to constrained motion, more general*phase-space*coordinate systems, relativistic invariance, and problems in quantum mechanics. Another nice implication of the principle of least action is that the conservation of energy follows from homogeneity of time, and conservation of momentum from isotropy of space [272]. We will be fine with the classical Newtonian formulation here.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

- ... points:
^{B.12} - We denote by
the set of all points in 3D Euclidean space. Thus
has three coordinates, usually denoted
,
, and
, or (as we
will use below),
,
, and
, all real scalars
(
).
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

- ...
rotating
^{B.13} - We are generally concerned with the rotation of a
rigid body about some axis passing through its center of
mass. Therefore, we will not distinguish between ``rotating,'' as
the earth does to produce night and day, and ``revolving,'' as the
earth does around the sun to produce the seasons. Thus, the
individual mass particles of a rotating rigid body will be said to
*rotate*about the axis of rotation, even though ``revolve'' might win more points on a middle-school exam.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

- ...,
^{B.14} - To create a rigid collection of point masses,
we can imagine them to be interconnected by ``massless rigid rods''
or, equivalently, ideal springs having infinite stiffness.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

- ...
density
^{B.15} - We let
be a force
*density*(a linear, spatial, force density, in newtons per meter) in order that it can be impulsive along as well as . We could have instead chosen a force applied at a particular point .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

- ... frame|textbf
^{B.16} - At this stage, a
better name for ``body-fixed frame'' would be
*center-of-mass frame*. However, later on, we will see that not only do we need to follow the center-of-mass with the origin of our body-fixed frame, but its coordinate axes will also need to remain pointing in the so-called*principal directions*(defined in §B.4.16).. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

- ... time.
^{B.17} - There is no problem with
conservation of momentum here. We will see in §B.4.13
that, for a rotating mass
at radius
, the angular momentum
is always
times the
instantaneous linear momentum
. Thus, in our problem,
converting angular momentum
to linear momentum
(in
the body-fixed frame) verifies conservation of momentum when we add
it to the linear momentum of the center of mass, which was also
found to be
. In other words, the total momentum is still
,
as initially delivered to the system.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

- ... vector.
^{B.18} - Another analogy is the
*right-hand screw*, in which the screw drives in the direction of the vector when it is turned clockwise from behind, as is standard.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

- ... them:
^{B.21} - We are using ``
''
(optionally, when it looks better) to denote
*scalar multiplication*here, while in vector calculus, would normally denote a*dot product*of the two vectors and , but we are writing the dot product as . (We could also use the ``inner-product'' notation for real vectors [454].) We could say that `` '' means ordinary multiplication when appearing between two scalars, and it means the dot product when used between two vectors. Between two matrices it would of course mean matrix multiplication.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

- ...conserved.
^{B.22} - Angular momentum is also conserved on the
smallest scales, such as
*orbital angular momentum*and the*spin*of fundamental particles such as an electron. Thus, conservation of angular momentum is a fundamental invariant in physics, along with conservation of energy and conservation of linear momentum. Since we live in 3D, that makes*seven*conserved quantities pertaining to motion of a mass through empty space: its kinetic energy, the three components of the linear momentum of its center of mass, and the three components of its angular momentum if it is rotating about its center of mass.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

- ... identity
^{B.23} - In
`maxima`, one can verify this identity with the following input (the output of which is ):`load(vect);`

A:[A1,A2,A3]; B:[B1,B2,B3]; C:[C1,C2,C3];

expand(express((A ~ (B ~ C)) - (B * (C . A) - C * (A . B))));

^{B.36} - Do not be misled by the name
``dispersion relation'' into thinking that wave propagation is
dispersive in this case--it is not. Dispersion occurs when
changes as a function of frequency; here it is a
constant. Thus, the dispersion relation implies wave propagation
dispersion when
is a
*nonlinear*function of .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

^{C.1} - Any function of

denotes
position along a ``waveshape'', may be interpreted as a fixed
waveshape traveling to the
*right*(positive direction), with speed . Similarly, any function of may be seen as a waveshape traveling to the*left*(negative direction) at speed meters per second. In both cases, denotes a position along the waveshape, and denotes time. For any fixed , a ``snapshot'' of the waveshape may be seen by evaluating along .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

- ... velocity|textbf
^{C.2} - The term
*phase velocity*is normally used when it differs from the*group velocity*, as in stiff, dispersive strings (§C.6). In the present context, the phase velocity and group velocity are the same, so the term ``wave velocity'' is unambigous here. See the analogous terms*phase delay*and*group delay*in [452] for more details about the difference.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

^{C.3} - A detailed derivation of the usual stiff-string wave equation
Eq.(C.32) is given by Morse in [320] or [321].
Derivations of more elaborate wave equations including rotary inertia
and shear effects are given in Graff [170, pp. 180-195]
(``flexural waves in thin rods''). See also Kolsky [263].

piano strings, and Cremer [95] regarding stiffness effects

^{C.5} - When the wave impedance
is complex, the junction effectively has state, so that energy, but not
necessarily power, is conserved. See §C.18 for an example.

^{C.6} - We

it is most commonly used in the literature for ladder and lattice
digital filters [299]. Be careful, however, because

^{F.1} - Wave
digital filters are not the same thing as digital waveguide networks,
however, because the wave variables in a wave digital filter have a
compressed frequency spectrum (from the bilinear transform), while the
signals in a digital waveguide network have a bandlimited spectrum
which is not warped.

for example, of the reflectance
of an ideal spring is
given by
After the bilinear transform , the phase delay becomes

*i.e.*, four samples per period, we find that one sample of delay does in fact correspond to a quarter-cycle of delay.The same holds true for the group delay of the spring reflectance:
