Hello,

I am a neuroscientist studying auditory responses and I am trying to learn some basics about sound waves. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a book that would help guide me through. specifically I'd like to get a solid understanding of differences among sound waves, different measurement systems of amplitude and frequency, broadband noise etc. Really it is rather hard to say exactly what I need as I am not really sure what I do not know.

I've found some information on the web, but it has mostly been confined to the high-school level and I am looking for something more along the lines of what a college physics/engineering undergrad might read.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Dave

I've found this page particularly enlightening : http://www.ee.washington.edu/conselec/CE/kuhn/audio/95x3.htm [Broken]

...but I suspevt you are asking for something that will bolster understanding of the fundamentals as well. I'll add to this if I think of something appropriate.
