Linearity And Nonlinearity In Musical Instruments

Fletcher, Neville H.


Basic understanding of musical instruments relies upon the fact that the primary vibrating element is, in nearly all cases, a simple linear extended vibrator with well defined mode frequencies. Some instruments, such as bells, guitars, and harpsichords, can be almost completely understood in.this approximation, though the discussion may necessarily be quite complicated because of the number of coupled linear systems involved. Instruments producing sustained sound, however, such...[Show more]
