I.1 Introduction to Room Acoustics
I.1.1 Basic concepts
Sound pressure, particle velocity, velocity potential, sound intensity

I.1.2 Reflection of sound
Impedance, absorption, transmission, diffraction, scattering, diffusion

I.1.3 Room acoustic responses
Can be obtained by measurements or by modeling. In this book, the focus is on modeling.

I.1.3.1 Impulse response
I.1.3.2 Time-energy response
I.1.4 Wave equation

$c=343 \frac{m}{s}$

Linearized wave-equation

$\nabla^2 p - \frac{1}{c^2}\frac{\partial^2 p}{\partial t^2} = 0$

Helmholtz equation

Some non-linear terms are still important:

I.1.5 Air absorption
