Doctoral dissertation on sound field synthesis

I have recently finished the official version of my doctoral dissertation on the theory of sound field synthesis. You can obtain a pdf from here.

Please cite as

Jens Ahrens: The Single-layer Potential Approach Applied to Sound Field Synthesis Including Cases of Non-enclosing Distributions of Secondary Sources. Doctoral dissertation, Technische Universität Berlin, 2010

or similarly.

It includes (amongst other things):

  • fundamentals of Wave Field Synthesis, Near-field Compensated Higher Order Ambisonics, and Spectral Division Method
  • extensive analyses of spatial aliasing artifacts

It does not include (amongst other things):

  • traditional Ambisonics
  • practical applications like moving sources, focused sources, etc.
  • perceptual expertiments
