 Synopsis:

The aim of this course is deeper understanding the fundamentals of physical acoustics. The continuity equation, Euler and NavierStokes equations and the energy equation are derived from the prime laws of fluid dynamics. These equations are utilized for derivation of a linear wave equation under the acoustical approximation; its special solutions are discussed. General solutions of the wave equation and Helmholtz equation are formulated using the integrals of KirchhoffHelmholtz and Rayleigh. Using these integrals, some problems of acoustic radiation and diffraction are studied. Problem of the acoustic field description is further developed using the methods of Fourier acoustics.
