Fundamentals of Spherical Array Processing (Springer Topics by Boaz Rafaely

By Boaz Rafaely

This booklet offers a entire creation to the speculation and perform of round microphone arrays. it really is written for graduate scholars, researchers and engineers who paintings with round microphone arrays in quite a lot of applications.


The first chapters give you the reader with the mandatory mathematical and actual historical past, together with an advent to the round Fourier remodel and the formula of plane-wave sound fields within the round harmonic area.

The 3rd bankruptcy covers the speculation of spatial sampling, hired whilst picking the positions of microphones to pattern sound strain services in house. next chapters current numerous round array configurations, together with the preferred rigid-sphere-based configuration. Beamforming (spatial filtering) within the round harmonics area, together with axis-symmetric beamforming, and the functionality measures of directivity index and white noise achieve are brought, and a variety of optimum beamformers for round arrays, together with beamformers that in achieving greatest directivity and greatest robustness, and the Dolph-Chebyshev beamformer are built. the ultimate bankruptcy discusses extra complex beamformers, comparable to MVDR and LCMV, that are adapted to the measured sound field.
