Although this fourth edition follows the same basic style and format as the first, second and third editions, the content has been considerably updated and expanded, yet again. This is partly in response to significant advances in the practice of acoustics and in the associated technology during the six years since the third edition and partly in response to improvements, corrections, suggestions and queries raised by various practitioners and students. The major additions are outlined below. However, there are many other minor additions and corrections that have been made to the text but which are not specifically identified here.
